Knowledge Translation

Health research funders such as MSFHR have an important role to play in advancing knowledge translation — the broad range of activities meant to improve the use of research evidence in practice, policy, and further research.

What is MSFHR's role in KT?

In an Implementation Science paper published by our KT team, we identify five functional areas through which funders can create the conditions for effective KT. The functional areas are not necessarily discrete (e.g. a KT award to support the study of the science of KT could fall under "Funding KT" as well as "KT Science") but the primary KT objective of our activities usually falls under one area.

Learn more about our work in each of these areas using the buttons below.
