Knowledge translation

Knowledge translation and/or knowledge mobilization are a set of strategic activities with the goal to streamline research evidence uptake, support a quality improvement culture, develop ongoing learning and information spreading efforts, drive the agenda for new research and discovery, and sustain and improve health research partnerships for health impact.

Knowledge translation supports the advancement of knowledge agendas and processes across teams to strengthen the health system and health outcomes. In particular, it is a practice that is continually being developed by BC health authorities, provinces across Canada, and internationally.

At Northern Health – Knowledge translation, we work with individuals and teams across the organization.
