What is Knowledge Translation?
Knowledge Translation (KT) is defined as "a dynamic and iterative process that includes synthesis, dissemination, exchange and ethically-sound application of knowledge...". KT requires interaction between researchers and knowledge users. These interactions may vary in intensity, complexity, and level of engagement depending on the scope of the research project (Canadian Institutes of Health Research)
