Moving from Data-to-Knowledge-to-Practice
Praxis Spinal Cord Institute works with a diverse range of partners on multi-disciplinary projects and initiatives to help improve access and quality of spinal cord injury (SCI) care.
We engage people with lived experience in our research and best practice implementation initiatives using Integrated Knowledge Translation (IKT) throughout the research cycle. Through this people-centred lens, we then apply it to a learning health system approach (data to knowledge to practice) to achieve evidence-informed, equitable, and optimal care. The approach starts with stakeholder engagement and knowledge generation (1-3), followed by knowledge translation and dissemination (4-5), implementation (6-7), evaluation (8), and national coordination (9).
