Doing KTE

Knowledge Transfer and Exchange (KTE), Integrated Knowledge Transfer (iKT) and other modalities of making research processes and results available and accessible to non-academic communities are a fascinating and fun aspect of HIV research!

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research define KTE as…

“… approach to doing research that applies the principles of knowledge translation to the entire research process. The central premise of iKT is that involving knowledge users as equal partners alongside researchers will lead to research that is more relevant to, and more likely to be useful to, the knowledge users.1-9 Each stage in the research process is an opportunity for significant collaboration with knowledge users, including the development or refinement of the research questions, selection of the methodology, data collection and tools development, selection of outcome measures, interpretation of the findings, crafting of the message and dissemination of the results.”
