Innovations in Knowledge Translation: the SPHERU KT Casebook – Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit – June 2011
Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit (SPHERU)

“In November of 2009, the Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit (SPHERU) issued a call for abstracts on knowledge translation (KT). We invited researchers, academics, policy makers, community practitioners and others to submit examples highlighting their work with KT initiatives. We asked contributors to focus on one of the following three themes: KT Strategies; KT in Action: Leading to Change in Policy or Practice; and Evaluation of KT Effectiveness. Our goal for the Innovations in Knowledge Translation: the SPHERU KT Casebook was to provide a toolkit of different knowledge translation (KT) strategies, actions, and evaluations to highlight concrete examples and best practices in knowledge translation.

The Casebook represents a diverse collection of innovative knowledge translation stories ranging from developing a music video for sharing healing stories of Aboriginal women’s drug addiction, to a national symposium to promote healthy lifestyle behaviors among school-aged children in Trinidad and Tobago. The casebook provides a means for sharing knowledge translation (KT) strategies, actions, and evaluations to help guide academics, researchers, community practitioners, policy makers and others in their application of knowledge translation.”  … continues
