Knowledge Mobilisation theme

Knowledge Mobilisation is a cross cutting theme that supports the co-creation of clinically informed, relevant research; evidence informed commissioning and the integration of research evidence into clinical practice. We facilitate the integration of evidence-based interventions into practice and the understanding of the processes that affect the successful dissemination and translation of newly acquired knowledge. This can improve both the healthcare and the societal impact of our research..
