The KT Game©

The KT Game© is a teaching and planning tool that can help you and your team develop a knowledge translation (KT) plan using a comprehensive card game. Playing the KT Game© is an engaging way to make KT planning visual, tactile and fun. Players choose a scenario and identify potential knowledge users using “Audience” cards. They define main messages for each knowledge user group, and decide how to engage those audiences by identifying appropriate KT strategies. The game can be played in order to develop KT planning skills or it can be used with a project team to begin the KT planning process. For planning purposes, The KT Game© can be used in conjunction with the Knowledge Translation Planning Template©.

Knowledge Translation Stories

Research is the basis for new discoveries.

Traditionally, new discoveries are only shared through scientific publications. At SickKids, researchers recognize the importance of sharing and their findings with many different groups using a variety of strategies.

Research findings should be communicated so that everyone can understand and use them to improve health and healthcare services. For example, parents should know about current research so they can advocate for their children’s health, and health-care providers need to know about recent discoveries that might affect how they deliver care.

These KT stories share some of the work that goes on at SickKids. Researchers, health-care providers and educators talk about what their work means for parents, healthcare professionals, policy makers, other researchers and society as a whole.

Plain Language Checklist

Plain language techniques can be used in most professional settings and situations. Using plain language ensures that your audience can understand your message the first time they read or hear it. The Plain Language Checklist was developed to guide the development of a message that incorporates plain language and KT principles.
