Module 7: Dissemination Strategies for Rural Diabetes Programs
Dissemination refers to sharing information and materials with a specific audience. Sharing information and resources from rural diabetes programs can help other rural organizations learn what works. Informing stakeholders about the program can help build and maintain relationships, credibility, and local support and buy-in from the community. Examples of stakeholders include individuals both within and outside of the program, including those at the local, state, and national levels. The best way to share information depends on the intended audience.
For detailed information on how to share your program's results, see Disseminating Best Practices in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
