CHRIL (Collaborative on Health Reform and Independent Living) provides disability stakeholders with accurate, current, accessible and actionable information on how recent changes in health policy affect the community living and integration of working-age adults with disabilities. While the CHRIL devotes significant time to knowledge translation, our research findings to date have not been widely used in disability advocacy efforts.
We do good work and try to get our research findings to disability advocates and policymakers. But our tables and graphs just aren’t enough. That’s why we are starting a new project called “Disability Stories about Health Policy.” The Disabilities Stories Project will help support and contextualize our research findings with personal stories from people with disabilities. This application has been reviewed and approved by the Washington State University Institutional Review Board.
