Frances’s research is developing high quality, evidence-based care that is accessible and acceptable to people with mental and physical health comorbidities. She aims to bridge the evidence-practice gap in four key ways:

(2) Deciding ‘who’ to disseminate it to;
(3) Deciding ‘how’ to disseminate it; and
(4) Determining ‘when’ is best to disseminate it.
