Knowledge Translation for Researchers


Increasing the impact of your research: Knowledge Translation for researchers.

Practical training for the research community


This training course explores how to more effectively integrate Knowledge Translation (KT) into research. We work with researchers to enhance the impact of research work and provide practical support to build KT skills and understanding within the research community.


We introduce participants to KT evidence and issues and offer practical solutions to strengthen knowledge translation and exchange planning, broaden engagement with decision-makers, and communicate more effectively.


The aims of the course are to:

  • Provide practical KT frameworks and enable researchers to implement the frameworks within the research plans and design.
  • Build understanding of the evidence and skills to support researchers' efforts to develop meaningful and reciprocal relationships with policy and practice decision-makers/end-users.
  • Provide researchers with skills and strategies for effectively communicating research methods and findings to non-academic audiences.

Previous courses

1/2 day introductory course:
In November 2014, as part of the NHMRC Research Translation Symposium, we ran an intensive introduction to our Knowledge Translation for Researchers training course.  The half day course took place in Melbourne and was supported by VicHealth.

One day short course

In February 2015, we ran the Knowledge Translation for Researchers short course in Melbourne. Over 25 people, with backgrounds in population/public health and health services research, attended.

Tailored short course

In March 2015, we tailored the Knowledge Translation for Researchers short course for the Centre of Research Excellence in Cerebral Palsy. Researchers from across the CRE including clinicians and health practitioners attended.
