Knowlege Translation Group


Effective knowledge translation (KT) in rehabilitation research is critical to ensure that clinicians and patients are equipped with the best information available, to ultimately improve patient outcomes. Our KT group is comprised of experts in the field who ensure the Network's KT strategy is being met.
