WALKING THE TALK: EXPLORING KNOWLEDGE TRANSLATION PRACTICE WITH HEALTH RESEARCHERS

Abstract
“Knowledge Translation” is it just a health research buzz word, or is it here to stay? Most knowledge translation research has focused on the perspectives of research users, with comparatively little study of the research producer. What does knowledge translation mean to health researchers? What does “doing KT” look like to them? This talk will examine key findings from our recent qualitative descriptive study of knowledge translation practice among Manitoba health researchers. We will focus on varied conceptualizations of knowledge translation and persisting support needs that include comprehensive systemic change. Interactive discussion will also explore the role of the health researcher in knowledge translation.

Objectives
Understand how researchers’ perspectives have been examined in KT research to date
Consider the implications of new research exploring how researchers across health research pillars conceptualize and practice KT Identify opportunities to support researchers in engaging in integrated, theory-based, and evidence-informed knowledge-to-action processes
