Abstract

This presentation examines the potential contribution of the emerging field of Knowledge Transfer and Exchange (KTE) and its implications for all stakeholders involved in clinical research and practice in aphasia, namely researchers and those who use research. The latter includes practitioners as well as policy and decision-makers. Issues presented will include the challenges of ensuring that research is relevant to practitioners, getting the message out to decision-makers and policy makers regarding the effectiveness of aphasia interventions, background and basic KTE principles; and possible next steps for the field of aphasia in relation to KTE.
