What is Knowledge Translation?

Knowledge translation is known by many terms including research translation, knowledge transfer and exchange, and engaged scholarship.

In a nutshell, knowledge translation is about getting the right information, to the right people, at the right time, and in a format they can use, so as to influence decision making.

Knowledge translation should be thought of as a system of processes that enable the development, dissemination, implementation, evaluation and impact of research evidence for those who need it. It requires collaboration, innovation, and the development of sustainable solutions.

Dr Tamika Heiden – Principal, Knowledge Translation Australia.

Hi, I’m Tamika Heiden, Principal and Founder.

I don’t know about you, but I became a researcher so that I could change the world! I guess I was a bit optimistic, but I really wanted to discover new things, I wanted to help people, and I wanted to make a difference somehow. These are values that have stayed with me, but I have realised that research alone, and the discovery of new evidence alone, will not make the difference that I was aiming for. I have realised the need to work in new ways to ensure that the findings of research get to the people who need to know about it, or who need to use it. Importantly, I have found and learnt proven methods, models and frameworks that can help.

Words from our raving fans!

  • Excellent Workshop

    I attended the knowledge translation roadmap workshop yesterday in preparation for a research fellowship application. This was a fantastic experience – Tamika was very knowledgeable and engaging, the content was relevant and interesting, and I have left the workshop feeling transformed. This will change the way I plan my research and no doubt will lead to better translation of my research. Thank you!

  • Friendly and Personable Approach

    Tamika was able to quickly grasp what we wanted and guide us through a process to identify the key actions we needed to undertake to deliver practical impact assessment for our industry adoption and extension activities. In doing so, she had a very friendly and personable approach and was able to work comfortably with our team and appropriately challenge us where warranted.
