Nursing and Allied Health Research and Knowledge Translation

Our Focus

The Nursing and Allied Health Research and Knowledge Translation department promotes innovation and excellence in interprofessional research and knowledge mobilization to drive evidence-informed improvements in care, better patient outcomes and increased system performance.

Nurses and allied health professionals bring distinct perspectives informed by practice expertise and an approach to research that guides knowledge generation toward relevant and meaningful problems. Our team operates at the intersection of science, practice and policy. This is where we can have the most impact and ensure researchers and decision-makers work together to identify and tackle complex health-related challenges.

In spring 2022, NAHKRT launched a staff engagement survey from March 17 – April 23 as part of a fulsome stakeholder engagement process. The goal of this survey was to understand current research and KT initiatives, existing infrastructure, workforce demographics, research priorities, learning needs, and barriers and facilitators to moving research and KT forward.
