Cochrane defines knowledge translation (KT) as the process of supporting the use of health evidence from our high quality, trusted Cochrane Reviews by those who need it to make health decisions. KT is an integral part of our strategy to make Cochrane evidence accessible and useful to everybody, while advocating for evidence-informed health care.
- Free online training module: Introducing knowledge translation in Cochrane. This module aims to strengthen the understanding of what KT means within Cochrane. It presents information, examples, and stories told by characters in order to explain the concepts presented in Cochrane's KT Framework.
- Cochrane Knowledge Translation Framework. The aim of the KT Framework is to provide clarity around Cochrane’s role in KT and what activities should be considered as priorities, both at Group and organization level.
