Knowledge Translation Committee

 

This is a new group that will be led by the MISIG Communications Officer. As a new group, we see alignment with existing task forces in that our goal is to translate new knowledge into practice as it relates to measurement. Some of the key objectives of the committee include:

  1. Understanding the translation of measurement concepts, measures and their applications into clinical practice and research
  2. Contributing to the evidence in understanding the factors related to uptake and implementation of standardized assessments in clinical practice
  3. Disseminating the mechanisms to facilitate knowledge translation surrounding measurement-related applications

Members of this group as well as the other MISIG task forces contribute by writing original articles for the MISIG newsletter. We are excited to see new members join this committee and facilitate the knowledge translation of measurement.
