Knowledge Translation, transfer and exchange, transfer, diffusion or mobilization are all terms that have been used to describe the complex set of activities involved in advancing knowledge generated from research into effective changes in health policy or practice.
The Knowledge Translation (KT) Program at SickKids supports the knowledge transfer and dissemination activities at SickKids and the surrounding knowledge communities through program offerings including KT training and consultation services.
A well-developed knowledge translation (KT) plan is emerging as a proposal requirement for health research in Canada and abroad, and there is greater attention to research utilization and research impact. The SKTT™ training course was developed on the premise that scientists are agents of change in creating research impact, promoting research utilization, and ensuring their research findings reach the appropriate audiences. There is a skill set surrounding KT practice, and it is these competencies that the training course was designed to impart.
