Population and public health research has been shifting from describing factors that shape health to an interrogation of the processes and outcomes underpinning policy and programme interventions. This shift has given rise to acknowledging population health intervention research (PHIR) as a distinct field of study in Canada. Given that PHIR aims to maximise the use of evidence to inform interventions, a discussion paper was written and a workshop was held, with 24 participants working across policy, practice and research, to identify distinct features of PHIR that create opportunities and challenges for knowledge translation (KT). Building on the discussion paper and activities at the workshop, workshop participants surfaced five features of PHIR that need specific consideration to facilitate progress on understanding and capitalising on the relationships between KT and PHIR. Implications for stakeholders interested in maximising the use of evidence to inform strategies for chronic disease prevention are also provided.
