Knowledge translation (KT) is an important element of all MSFHR funding programs. Our goal is to help BC health researchers develop the skills they need to increase the impact of their research. We work to advance the science and practice of KT, and build KT capacity through funding opportunities, training and resources.
MSFHR offers a number of KT funding programs designed to foster collaboration and support the dissemination and implementation of research evidence.
- Convening & Collaborating (C2) Program
Provides funding for teams of health researchers and research users to co-develop research aligned with BC’s health system priorities. These collaborations increase the likelihood that the research findings will be relevant to users.
- Reach Program
Provides funding for teams of researchers and research users to support the dissemination of research evidence in ways that facilitate its effective uptake and potential to impact health and care.
- Implementation Science Team Program
Supports teams to study the methods and mechanisms that promote the integration of evidence into health policy and practice in order to improve the quality and effectiveness of health services and care.
