The purpose of the Center on Knowledge Translation for Disability and Rehabilitation Research (KTDRR) is to make it easier to find, understand, and use the results of research that can make a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities. Knowledge translation (KT) refers to strategies that move research into practice by improving the relevance, reporting, accessibility, interpretation, and application of research results. The KTDRR Center focuses on KT activities to support researchers in the disability and rehabilitation field.
In collaboration with several national and international partners, KTDRR carries out integrated training, dissemination, utilization, and technical assistance activities to
- increase use of valid and relevant evidence-based research findings that inform decision-making, and
- increase the understanding and application of knowledge translation principles.
KTDRR is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
