Summary:OBJECTIVES: To conduct a pilot study of three dissemination products for an evidence report targeting decision makers in a health system. METHODS: We selected a recent evidence report that presented information about a specific decision. We then prepared three dissemination products for the report: key points, newsletter item, and an evidence to decision (EtD) framework. We identified and sought feedback from those in a health system who make the specific decision. RESULTS: We received responses from four of the five decision makers. The key points and newsletter item products were considered useful by one respondent. The other responses were not comprehensive but suggested that none of the products were helpful. CONCLUSIONS: Dissemination alone or "pushing" information not requested does not seem to be seen as informative or useful by decision makers. Identifying what information to provide when, especially when not requested by the health system decision makers, needs further consideration
