Knowledge Translation

Domain Knowledge

IHPME researchers are continually engaged in the translation of research into practices that improve healthcare. Collaborative relationships with healthcare providers and decision-makers and the community enhance this process. Research in the area of knowledge translation is essential to improving health care outcomes and maximizing the potential of the health system.

Current Research Interests and Affiliations

IHPME researchers, including A. Paul Williams, work with the Canadian Research Network for Care in the Community (CRNCC) to collaboratively advance research and knowledge translation in the area of community care.

The aim of the CRNCC is to encourage collaborative, community-driven research, by bringing together academic and community research, community service providers, consumers and policy makers to support research and knowledge in the area of home and community care.

In addition, a number of IHPME faculty are engaged in knowledge translation research that contributes to our understanding of the processes and contextual factors that impact efforts to incorporate evidence-based information into clinical and management practice.
