- Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research (CCGHR) Curriculum for Knowledge Translation: This comprehensive curriculum is a teaching and learning resource. It explores the complex ideas and theories that many knowledge mobilization workers employ in their daily practice.
- KT4TT Knowledge Base: The researcher’s resource for innovation – now including tools!- In under an hour this webcast will introduce and demonstrate the Need to Knowledge (NtK) Model game board and a comprehensive repository of tools for generating new products through the methods of research, development, and production.Nearly 80 tools within the domains of business, mechanical engineering, material science, electrical engineering and universal design, are available at the click of a button. Join us as we show you how to access these tools, learn about where they apply within the new product development process, their relative advantages and disadvantages and links to additional information – including both free and paid resources.The Knowledge Base and the preliminary text version of the NtK model were first introduced in August 2010 in a webcast entitled, The KT4TT Knowledge Base: Steps and Supporting Evidence to Improve Your Process
- KM/KT planning for grant applications — notes from the KM Unit’s information session: Presented by Dr. Stephen Ross (Associate Professor, Department of English) and Holland Gidney (Research and Scholarship. Coordinator, Faculty of Social Sciences) in September 2012, these presentation notes will help you write an effective and realistic KM plan into your grant applications this fall.
- Knowledge Sharing Toolkit: A collection of knowledge sharing tools that range from introductory resources to a master list of methods and tools. (The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).)

- The Centre for Research on Inner City Health: Knowledge Tranlation Toolkit (St.Michael’s Hospital): Tools and tips to help maximize the practical impact of research. The list of resources includes everything from a workbook to tools for researchers and tools for using research in policy, planning, and advocacy.
- Knowledge Star Initiative: Knowledge workers identify with various titles (from Knowledge Broker to Knowledge Mobilization Speicalist) and engage in a number of cutting edge intitatives that defy the use of an umbrella term. One thing remains consistent across this continuum: We work to collaboratively create knowledge and move that knowledge into the hands of those who can best affect positive social change. This site offers knowledge workers tools, connections, and best practices that help us all avoid “reinventing the [knowledge] wheel.”
- Knowledge Mobilization Works: My mentor and colleague, Peter Levesque, has been a knowledge mobilizer for over ten years. He is a master of moving knowledge into practice and managing communities of practice where the free flowing movement of knowledge benefits all.
- Canadian Institutes of Health Research: the penultimate description/definition of knowledge translation and integrated knowledge translation.
- KTE in action: NeuroDevNet: Knowledge production, transfer, and application are key components of the research process. NeuroDevNet builds capacity for knowledge translation in the demonstration projects, shares knowledge between projects, and reviews and synthesize existing research on neurological disorders.
- Knowledge Translation at the Saskatchewan Population Health and Research Unit (SPHERU): SPHERU is producing cutting edge and leading research about the social determinants of health and using an integrated knowledge translation (iKT) model to bring stakeholders together.
- Canadian Health Services Research Foundation (CHSRF): Knowledge translation myths busted, frameworks developed, and insightful resouces.
- Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF): Knowledge translation in action.
- Sandy Campbell, Knowledge Translation Specialist: selective list of knowledge translation references and resources.
New knowledge translation casebook features kidSKAN as a case study:
SPHERU’s knowledge translation (KT) casebook features stories that range from a music video for sharing healing stories of Aboriginal women’s drug addiction to a national symposium aimed at promoting healthy lifestyle behaviors among school-aged children in Trinidad and Tobago. kidSKAN is included, providing a successful example of a checklist on how researchers can connect with decision-makers.
