Research translation and evaluation are often underconsidered in research design and implementation thus limiting research benefit to the end user. In this article, we first describe a best practice approach to evaluation, for a center of research excellence in polycystic ovary syndrome. Within this, we outline a comprehensive research translation program with inbuilt evaluation of the first International Evidence-based Guideline for the Assessment and Management of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (2018). We seek to provide a real-world example of comprehensive approaches to evaluation and research translation.
