Knowledge Translation Challenge

Knowledge translation

... the art and science of moving evidence into health care policy and practice.


The Knowledge Translation (KT) Challenge is designed to support teams of PHC and VCH clinicians who many not have much KT expertise but are responsible for moving evidence into practice. Successful applications to the KT Challenge will receive funding (up to $5,000) and training learn the basics of knowledge translation and to support a KT initiative.
