iKT Research Network  

"Integrated knowledge translation (IKT) sees the potential users of knowledge— healthcare practitioners, managers, policymakers, patients—partnered with scientists on applied research projects. This is doing research with the people who use it. The rationale is that fully involving knowledge users in the research process will lead to more relevant and applicable knowledge and a greater capacity for and likelihood of implementation. This integration of knowledge-user and researcher expertise should lead to more research-informed decisions, more effective and efficient health services, and better health outcomes."
