ELIAS, Flávia Tavares Silva  e  PATROCLO, Maria Aparecida de Assis. Research use: how to build a theoretical model of evaluation?. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2005, vol.10, n.1, pp.215-227. ISSN 1678-4561.

Many international forums agree that scientific investigations are a subsidy for the decision making process in health. The goal of this article is that of making a bibliographical revision which may allow the proposal of a suitable model for evaluating how results of researches are used in the development of health policies. Two authors were chosen as a theoretical referential due to their contributions in the contexts of America (Weiss, C.) and Latin-America (Trostle et al.). The following components were included in the theoretical model: research, interaction, communication, players, social pressure and funding. Results were seen according to a specific criteria as to better evaluate each component. A matrix to evaluate how efficient the use of research data may be was developed considering categories as follows: structural, operational, strategic, systemic and specific. For demonstrate the balance of forces involved in the process of linking research to policies, an encouragement-obstacle matrix was developed. Social, economic, political, cultural and managerial dimensions were considered. The set including the model and the matrixes subsidize to select the indicators for evaluating and monitoring any program that may base itself on results of researches of the Ministry of Health.

Palavras-chave : Theoretical model of evaluation; Indicators of the the use of research.
