Resources that enhance health promotion and disease prevention in communities or populations.
Disease prevention & reduction advances are created through clinical research, but the methods of that research are instructed by how it will be adapted into the population and practice-based evidence (translational research). For the disease prevention & reduction research to be meaningful, clinical and translational research needs to inform each other, i.e., a very expensive vaccine that has 100% efficacy rate will not translate into as effective disease prevention and reduction intervention as an inexpensive vaccine with 90% efficacy rate.
Advice from authors on searching for information:
Without specific analyses, it may be challenging to attribute disease prevention and reduction in populations to a specific clinical and translational research project. Researchers may want to consult with domain specific experts. Self-reported researcher data may be required to connect specific research findings to resources that prevent and reduce disease in populations.
Working with non-academic partners and stakeholders can inform important sources. Demographic categories (inconsistency over time, representation of populations or sub groups, etc.) should also be considered.
