IHSPR Knowledge translation
Knowledge translation (KT) is vital to the work of IHSPR. We are committed to supporting researchers who engage in knowledge translation best practices and the development of new approaches, methods and tools to facilitate effective research uptake among the research community, health care professionals, policy makers and the general public.
We work with key partners to generate and enhance strategic and long-term interactions between researchers and knowledge users, in the ongoing development of health services and policy KT activities.
Our strategic research initiatives emphasize the importance of knowledge translation to inform the decision making of health care professionals, managers and policy makers. In addition, IHSPR has funded and partnered on a number of integrated and end of grant KT programs.
