  • Provides individual coaching support and feedback to help participants directly apply KT methods to their own projects.
  • Establishes a community of practice where participants can share their experiences, challenges, and successes with implementation.
  • Professionals in any health-related discipline (e.g., healthcare, public health, mental health) who are responsible for implementing change.
