OBJECTIVE: To focus on the benefits and importance of research to the practice of health education. METHODS: The paper discussed the potential of quality research as well as the barriers that keep health educators from using, applying, and sharing their work.
RESULTS: The basic challenges health educators face in translating their research into practice relate to: becoming well-versed in the science base and previous lessons learned; collaborating effectively; and passing on knowledge by mentoring.
CONCLUSIONS: To move forward, health educators need to organize their knowledge and make it accessible. This includes explicit and tacit knowledge, work in progress, and a coordinated research agenda. Finally, health educators need to be flexible so they can enable future research needs.
