Knowledge translation in Canada: the state of play.
Anita Kothari, associate professor, University of Western Ontario, Canada.
Anita Kothari is an assistant professor in the School of Health Studies at the University of Western Ontario. She is interested in understanding how to best support the use of research and knowledge in healthcare decision-making, with a particular focus on integrated knowledge translation.
‘Canada has played a major role in the evolution of knowledge translation by building capacity and capability among researchers, decision-makers and organisations,’ she says.
In this talk, she will discuss the concepts of knowledge mobilisation, knowledge translation and implementation science from the Canadian context. She will use examples from her research to illustrate the nuances of integrated knowledge translation in contrast to co-production approaches.
Next seminar: Tuesday 9 January 2018, 4pm to 5pm, Small lecture theatre, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience.
Graham Martin, professor of health organisation and policy, University of Leicester.

Anyone who is interested in improvement and implementation is welcome to attend. The seminars are organised by King's Improvement Science postdoctoral fellows.
KIS is part of the Centre for Implementation Science at the National Institute for Health Research [NIHR] Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research [CLAHRC] South London, also based at King's College London. The CIS is home to a team of expert researchers, including health economists and statisticians. They investigate how best to help implement evidence-based practice and research results within health services in south London and further afield.
