Print methods include:
 

  • Reports, fact sheets, and research syntheses communicating the results of surveys and other research activities
  • Publication of Research Activities, AHRQ's monthly newsletter AHRQ

Electronic methods include:
 

  • The AHRQ Web site as well as AHRQ program specific sites
  • AHRQ's Electronic Newsletter

Information Clearinghouse: AHRQ also has an Information Clearinghouse used to disseminate print and other media.

Secondary methods of dissemination include, but are not limited to: workshops, audiovisual techniques, oral presentations, and teleconferences. These dissemination mechanisms largely draw on information developed and reviewed first through one of the primary print or electronic modes of information dissemination.
