What have we found?

  • Bridging the ‘know-do’ or research-practice gap relies on interpersonal connections; knowledge brokers do this.

  • Knowledge brokers are people or organisations that create connections between individuals
    and groups; they are involved in the co-design and implementation of applied health research.

  • Knowledge brokers help to transform research knowledge so it can be used to make a real-world impact.
