A companion to the literature review entitled Human Services Research Dissemination: What Works?, this short piece diagrams and describes a framework for the dissemination of human services research.  Framing dissemination as a communications process, it identifies four main phases.  In each phase, the framework identifies core challenges and key questions.   An overarching theme is that dissemination is not simply what happens after a study is complete; it is relevant to all steps in the research process.
