Transcript of CHA Presentation June 2017

KT Context
KT provides opportunities for impact
Integrated Knowledge Translation - A Catalyst for Research Impact
What is Knowledge Translation?
"The synthesis, exchange, and application of knowledge by relevant stakeholders to accelerate the benefits of global and local innovation in strengthening health systems and improving people’s health."
World Health Organization (2005)

The Rules:
CANNOT ask me questions
CAN discuss with each other
NOTE any observations about what your experience and/or feeling during the exercise

Please use the map provided to plan your route home tonight after this talk.
While working on this, think about what the consequences might be if you can’t get home tonight?

An exercise in KT and perspective

Describe your experience?

How did you feel?

What would have made you more successful at accomplishing your task?

What happened?
What would have made you more successful at accomplishing this task?
Knowing something about the person, like where they are staying tonight
Language preferences
Telling you where you are in relation to the map (context)
Where we are is not on the map, so acknowledging what is known is important
How much you want to (or can) pay to get home
Not taking a one-size fits all approach

Literature & previous research
Creation of Questions & Methods
Research Process
Knowledge from research findings
Publications & Conference Presentations
Consultation with stakeholders/ Market research & vision
Collaborative partnerships formed with stakeholders
Work with stakeholders to determine contextual relevance of knowledge
Implementation of knowledge
Researchers & Knowledge Users
Determine how this knowledge could make a difference
Apply the knowledge we gain to tackle health challenges
Measured at the level of the user
Influencing subsequent rounds of research
Dissemination of knowledge
Plain language summaries
Social & other media
Public seminars/ info sessions
Stakeholder feedback
Implications of knowledge
Ongoing reporting to stakeholders/ flexibility & sensitivities
Continued engagement/ relationship management
Roles & responsibilities
Commercialisation (e.g new drugs)
Clinical practice
Service provision
Evaluation of research implementation

Get involved in priority setting for research projects - relevance & need.
Co-create projects - set goals, discuss outputs.
Discuss the role you can play in the process (when, what, how)
Consider both clinical and research needs - understand different worlds
Implementation Science
Scalability & sustainability considerations
Key points...
Clinicians would need to read 20 articles a day all year round to maintain present knowledge.
Shaneyfelt T. Building bridges to quality. JAMA 2001; 286: 2600-01.
The need for KT
What is needed to get to impact
UK assessment of research excellence and impact 2014
Common elements of 4* case studies:
- clear connectivity to objectives and impact.
- audiences, methods, dates, phases (Who, how & when).
Tailor made impact
- types for each audience.
- tailoring to needs of stakeholders, adapted as required.
Assign responsibility
- roles
Demonstrate demand
- market research
Collaborative partnerships
- know stakeholder behaviour/context
Passion and commitment
Includes all steps between the creation of new knowledge and its application
Needs multi-directional communications
Is an interactive process
Requires ongoing collaborations among relevant parties
Includes multiple activities
Involves diverse knowledge-user groups
Is user- and context-specific
Is impact-oriented.

Characteristics of KT
Sudsawad, P. (2007). Knowledge translation: Introduction to models, strategies, and measures. Austin, TX: Southwest Educational Development Laboratory, National Center for the Dissemination of Disability Research.
A complex and confusing topic - with a multitude of terms.
Sometimes confused with dissemination, communication, commercialisation.
A social, non-linear process, built on solid relationships.
Broadly -
The process of moving knowledge into action.
The meeting ground between research and action.
“Research impact is the demonstrable contribution that research makes to the economy, society, culture, national security, public policy or services, health, the environment, or quality of life,
beyond contribution to academia

What is Impact?
Australian Research Council Definition
"Impact shows that people knew what to do with the knowledge you shared"

Dr Melanie Barwick, SickKids Canada
Tailor made solutions
Vision for change
Translation planning
It takes an average of 17 years for research evidence to reach clinical practice
Practice-based research--"Blue Highways" on the NIH roadmap.
Westfall JM, Mold J, Fagnan L JAMA. 2007 Jan 24; 297(4):403-6.
Non-academic impacts, not bibliometrics and citations.
How many articles do you read each day?
