KT Alberta

KT Alberta is a virtual resource space for people working in health-related knowledge translation, providing support to the research community through a bi-weekly newsletter of events, blog postings, and recorded webinars. We use the term “KT” to include knowledge translation, knowledge synthesis, and implementation science.

What is Knowledge Translation?

Knowledge Translation (KT) transforms evidence into active practice. KT is a series of activities ranging from collecting, collating, and making sense of evidence, to dissemination of knowledge, to application and use.

Knowledge Translation Practice

Knowledge translation is a practice that spans across sectors and disciplines. It includes academic and community-based researchers, healthcare practitioners, patients, and policymakers. Our point is that KT is a broad and multidisciplinary field. There is no single definition of KT practice, and no single group of KT practitioners.

Knowledge Translation Research

Knowledge translation research topics range from information design, to meta-analysis, communications to evaluation. Of particular interest are ways in which KT research can build engagement with patient voices and communities.

On this page you will find a collection of newsletters, blog posts, and webinars useful to KT research and practice in the health sector.


The KT Alberta Newsletter is sent out every two weeks and keeps subscribers updated with KT-related happenings and opportunities in Alberta, across the country, and internationally.
