Knowledge Translation in Health
- More efforts to increase the focus on research impact to assist in closing the gap for knowledge translation in healthcare. Focus on the problems at the pointy end of healthcare, involve the clinicians with patients, and provide feedback to introduce change.
- Consider practical legislative and regulatory changes which may be outdated, to address increased knowledge translation in healthcare. The includes enforcement and oversight of systems, interoperability and data standards.
- Continue to challenge ourselves and our organisations on the cultural barriers to change that we see and how to address them internally.
- Knowledge and data sharing in the digital age should ultimately empower the clinician patient relationship rather than put the power solely in the hands of the clinician or to move it to the patient.
- Ensuring we have an outcome focused research approach in everything we do, particularly in digital health which still needs to build a knowledge and evidence base.
