Discovering or generating new knowledge has been a major goal to
improve health and well-being as well as library services and staffing.
Just as important, or maybe even more important, is the ability
to take this new knowledge and move it into practice. Participants
will learn the basics and theory behind knowledge translation and
what enhances effective and timely adoption of new knowledge. They
will also have opportunity to reflect on past changes and plan for
future innovations in their own settings and situations.
