Introduction on Knowledge Translation Strategy

The Cochrane Strategy to 2020 clearly positions us as an organization that communicates outwardly to achieve better uptake of evidence in health care. A particular objective is to "… build greater recognition of Cochrane’s role as an essential link between primary research and health decision-making." Although many Cochrane contributors are already involved in knowledge translation activities locally and within their own specialty, we are aware that we need a more comprehensive and consistent approach across the organization, and to consider the role of Cochrane evidence in the context of other available resources in order to maximize the impact of our work.

The Cochrane Knowledge Translation Framework defines the role of knowledge translation for Cochrane, provides a framework to coordinate these activities across the organization, and supports those who are well-placed to undertake this role.
