What is Knowledge Translation?
Knowledge translation (KT) is the process by which new knowledge is transformed into information that benefits society through changed policies, behaviors, programs, or practices. KT is a systematic process that begins with collecting and analyzing the latest research findings. Then, research-based recommendations are made regarding best practices and treatments. Finally, this synthesized and translated knowledge is promptly and effectively disseminated to those who need it. Learn more about Knowledge Translation...
