Knowledge translation (KT) is the process for using evidence in practice and decision making thereby strengthening health systems and improving health outcomes.
But how do you gain a working knowledge of what KT is when so much confusion and complexity surrounds it? Our approach to KT is rooted in theory and science, but our application of KT is uniquely pragmatic and focused on real-world impact. Our approach to training involves presenting KT in a relevant and practical way so that individuals and organizations become empowered to support KT initiatives within their own network.
- Identify key KT definitions
- Use theories, models, and frameworks for KT activities
- Discuss what to consider when planning for implementation
- Outline a plan for implementation evaluation and sustainability
