Library & Knowledge Services: KT Design Collaborative

CW KT Design Collaborative

Knowledge Translation (KT) is a dynamic and iterative process for mobilizing knowledge into practice intended to strengthen health systems and improve health outcomes.


The CW KT Design Collaborative is a cohort-based learning curriculum that provides point of care clinicians, educators, quality and safety leaders, practice leaders and other change champions at CW the opportunity to:

  • Select a gap between knowledge and action they they wish to address as their change/KT initiative

  • Apply evidence-informed KT principles and tools to develop a targeted plan for change

  • Learn together and build on their toolkits for supporting change
