On 11 November at the Evidence Quarter we heard from Tara Lamont (NIHR, and HSR UK Trustee), author of Making Research Matter, and a fantastic panel of guests on communicating health and care research to different audiences.

Drawing on content from the book and panellists' experience in fields from journalism to health and care practice, we discussed how to reach different audiences with an interest in research (practitioners, public and policymakers) and how to achieve maximum impact.
