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 health-care 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 Knowledge Translation 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, health-care professionals, policy makers, other researchers and society as a whole.
