IntroductionProducing research evidence alone does not directly result in the provision of ideal health care. Consequently, there is a gap between evidence and decision‐making at all levels of health care involving different stakeholders, for instance, healthcare professionals and policy‐makers. Thus, the progress in medical research aimed at improving healthcare quality led to an increasing need for knowledge dissemination in the last decades.Knowledge dissemination can be understood as an active approach of spreading evidence‐based interventions, mainly resulting from research activities, to a target audience (key stakeholders) via determined channels using targeted strategies. It is a prerequisite to make prevention effective in real life. Straus et al. reviewed theories and frameworks and proposed an action cycle (knowledge‐to‐action‐framework) describing the processes of knowledge creation and the application and implementation of knowledge to practice. They highlight that it is crucial to include the end‐users and ‘to ensure that the knowledge and its subsequent implementation are relevant to their needs’.This study deals with the dissemination and implementation of research on the prevention of occupational skin diseases (OSD). OSD, which often have a chronic disease course, are of great medical and socio‐economic concern because they impair the well‐being and quality of life of affected individuals. They
