NIHR Dissemination Centre
Right evidence, better decisions
The NIHR Dissemination Centre (NIHR DC) aims to put research evidence at the heart of decisions made in the NHS, public health and social care.
It helps clinicians, commissioners and patients to make evidence-based decisions about which treatments and practices are most effective and offer the best use of resources.
The centre critically appraises the latest health research, from both within the NIHR and other research organisations, to identify the most reliable, relevant and significant findings.
It then disseminates these findings as actionable, accessible, and trustworthy information in the form of Signals, Highlights and Themed Reviews.
