Knowledge Translation Challenge

Purpose

  • Help design your own KT project
  • Provide easy access to KT resources, mentorship and funding

Have you identified a need for practice improvement? Your knowledge translation (KT) project will help you integrate evidence into best practices.

Funding Partners

Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute is delighted to partner with Providence Health Care on the Knowledge Translation Challenge program.
