Background: Knowledge creation forms an integral part of the knowledge-to-action framework aimed at bridging the gap between research and evidence-informed decision making. Although principles of science communication, data visualisation and user-centred design largely impact the effectiveness of communication, their role in knowledge creation is...

This protocol describes FRESH AIR, an implementation science project exploring how to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of chronic lung diseases in contexts with limited healthcare resources. It consists of inter-related studies that take place in four countries that are part of the International Primary Care Respiratory Group’s (IPCR...

... This can only happen in collaboration with Roma: leveraging trust established by local mediators and strengthening relationships between Roma communities and primary care services (49,63). For example, a Hungarian primary care programme involved non-professional health mediators of Roma ethnicity to promote access to care and was recently positively evaluated (64). CRDspecific examples of population-level interventions to increase CRD-related health literacy through increasing awareness can be drawn from FRESH AIR's work in global low-resource settings. ...
... However, such programs need to train a critical mass to enhance EIDM practice effectively. (Poot et al., 2018). EIPM tools may also lead to change by increasing the value staff place on evidence by convincing them of data's benefits to decision-making. ...
... We also asked the MRC battery assessing dyspnea yielding a score of 0-4 (Bestall et al. 1999). To assess possible asthma, we included two yes or no items from the Fresh Air study (Cragg et al. 2016): (1) Have you ever had wheezing (especially when exhaling)? (2) Do you ever happen to wake up because of wheezing in the morning or at night? ...
... This was a qualitative study. The methodological approach was based on the "SETTING" tool for context mapping of health interventions in low-resource settings (34), starting with co-setting study priorities with local stakeholders. Our multidisciplinary team was composed of external and local experts and members of the Roma population. ...
