The KIPA group believes in the usefulness of integrated knowledge translation (Figure 1: Graham et al., 2006)
Integrated knowledge translation is a dynamic and iterative process that pays attention to how knowledge will be applied while the evidence is being created for clinical use. The creation of knowledge for practice and the implementation of knowledge into practice are two important components to ensuring best clinical care.
“Implementation Research is the scientific study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of clinical research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice, and hence to improve the quality (effectiveness, reliability, safety, appropriateness, equity, efficiency) of health care. It includes the study of influences on healthcare professional an organizational behavior.” (Eccles et al, 2009).
