A Landscape for Training in Dementia Knowledge Translation (DKT)
Illes, Judy; Chahal, Neil; Beattie, B. Lynn
Gerontology & Geriatrics Education, v32 n3 p260-272 2011
Meaningful translation of dementia research findings from the bench to the bedside is dependent on the quality of the knowledge to transfer and the availability and skills of investigators engaged in the knowledge translation process. Although there is no shortage of research on dementia, the latter has been more challenging. Results from a survey of 173 researchers from across Canada suggest that workshops and self-paced online training in dementia knowledge translation are needed to bridge the research-to-practice gap. Sharing information among professionals and with the public and formulating actionable messages to policy makers are primary goals. (Contains 3 figures and 4 tables.)
