Knowledge Translation (KT)
Put your research findings into practice
Knowledge Translation (KT) is the process of taking knowledge from research and putting it into action. It is a dynamic and iterative process that involves methodology, collaboration, and strategy. At WCHRI, we are nurturing a research environment where KT is a meaningful, feasible and ethical/responsible component of members' research projects.
- Assisting with the development of a knowledge translation and implementation plan
- Reviewing knowledge translation sections of research proposals and funding applications
- Interpreting research for different audiences.
Knowledge translation and implementation science support is also available to all Alberta researchers through the Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit (AbSPORU) Knowledge Translation Platform.
Check out WCHRI’s KT handout—it provides definitions and information about knowledge users and knowledge brokers. More resources include:
- Knowledge Translation (KT) Alberta website
