Knowledge Translation in Rehabilitation Counseling
Johnson, Kurt; Brown, Pat; Harniss, Mark; Schomer, Katherine
Rehabilitation Education, v24 n3-4 p239-248 2010
The process and importance of Knowledge Translation (KT) for the field of rehabilitation counseling is described. One element of the KT process, systematic reviews of the literature, is described along with several strategies for grading evidence. Practicing clinicians, as do consumers, encounter a number of barriers to using primary source research. Rehabilitation counselors need access to the best evidence available to inform their clinical practice. Consumers of rehabilitation counseling services require high quality accessible information about evidence to support their informed decision making about participating in rehabilitation programs.
