This 69-page document includes 10 case studies describing efforts and successes in building KT-friendly organizations from a range of sectors in healthcare, education, academia, and nonprofit. Each section is authored by a different organization, and each organization shares its unique perspectives and solutions to providing KT. http://www.melaniebarwick.com/KTPC_dl.php

  • Barwick’s KT Planning Template (fillable)—This resource was created by Melanie Barwick of the Hospital for Sick Children.

  • KT Planning Primer (Public Health Agency of Canada)—This resource was developed by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to support KT planning activities that share useful knowledge about research with stakeholder audiences. The KT Planning Primer is made up of three separate resources that work in combination with one another: a diagram showing the KT planning process, a worksheet to guide teams through necessary steps, and a user guide with references and appendices to support ongoing KT project implementation. http://publications.gc.ca/collections/collection_2013/aspc-phac/HP35-37-2012-eng.pdf
