Health Services Research examines health care situations and develops new concepts for the advancement of health care. However, several studies document that the translation of research results into health care practice does not generally succeed well. The dissemination of results using online platforms that complement publications in print media is faster and more efficient at actually reaching health care professionals. Especially when health care agents are actively involved in the development of such online platforms, lasting advancements of health care in light of new research results can take place. The goal of the CoRe-WEB project is to conceptionalize, implement and evaluate an online platform that presents research results from the Cologne Research and Development Network (CoRe-Net) for health care professionals and decision makers. The platform will be implemented using exemplary results of the two research projects „Last Year of Life in Cologne“ (LYoL-C) and „Desire to Die in Palliative Care“ (DEDIPOM) that have been carried out by the PMV forschungsgruppe and at the Center for Palliative Medicine of the University Hospital Cologne.
The project is carried out as a combined conceptional and evaluative study. The conceptional part encompasses the processing of the results of the two projects LYoL-C and DEDIPOM and the technical development of the online platform. The evaluative part encompasses the piloting of the platform and its evaluation as well as a redesign based on results of the evaluation. To this end, a mixed methods approach collects user opinions using an online survey and participatory observation.
