What have we tried? What works? A Canadian environmental scan of organizational supports for moving evidence into action in pediatrics

Last modified by Grace Scorrar on 2018/02/28 19:31

Moving evidence into action is a significant challenge in health care. Pediatric health care and research organizations vary significantly in the ways they support their staff and stakeholders to carry out evidence informed health care (EIHC) and knowledge translation (KT). The organizational structures, processes, services and resources in place to support EIHC and KT in these settings across Canada have yet to be described. This information, along with the identification of organizational innovations, is critical for informing the development and refinement of comprehensive EIHC/KT support strategies for pediatrics that meet the needs of health care leaders, health professionals, researchers, patients and families, and other key stakeholders.
