If a research project is a component of an academic qualification, you will need to discuss external communication of research findings with your academic supervisor in the first instance, and adhere to any requirements of the academic institution in this regard.
If the research has not been funded by the Agency, you must not act as a spokesperson for the Agency when communicating findings in external settings and should not use Child and Family Agency branding in this regard.
We ask you to disseminate findings in accordance with the Agency’s Research Dissemination Policy and Procedure and stipulate that all researchers who have been ethically approved by Tusla, read the policy, discuss the dissemination of research findings with either line management and academic supervisors in the first instance and consider the dissemination checklist for the type of research study you have undertaken.
If your research has been funded or part-funded by Tusla, this will need to be declared within the preamble to the research and the policy guidance in Tusla’s Research Dissemination Policy and Procedure followed. If your research has been funded by the Agency, a joint position on communicating the findings should be developed in consultation with Tusla’s Communications Department.
If you are asked to share your research findings with external media, consider the impact of external communication of research findings on participants who engaged in your research project. You may need to seek their re-consent prior to communicating research findings in the public arena through traditional or new media channels, if this has not already been captured in the information sheet and consent form for the study. If this is not feasible, every attempt to anonymise and de-identify participants’ data should be made.
When communicating research findings from your project, focus specifically on the learning from the research project only.
If applicable, please have regard to your professional code of conduct.
