Abstract

Improved translation of health research knowledge into clinical practice is required to provide people with aphasia with effective and equitable health treatments. However, implementation of research outcomes can be slow leading to poorer health outcomes. Knowledge Transfer and Exchange (KTE) approaches trialed in individual aphasia rehabilitation studies have demonstrated that research knowledge can be translated into clinical practice to improve communication access for people with aphasia. This paper describes a multilayered KTE strategy developed by mapping a national aphasia research program onto The Knowledge-to-Action-Process Framework (Graham et al., 2006) to maximize the effective translation of research evidence into clinical practice.
