||A guide to knowledge translation theory
||Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions
||Estabrooks et al. explore the variety of theoretical perspectives surrounding knowledge translation. Although there is a wide range of theories relating to or encompassing knowledge translation, there has yet to be a comprehensive description of their relationships and explicit differences. The goal of this article was to clarify terms used in models within the social sciences and clinical fields as well as discuss relevant complimentary theories. In order to obtain a comprehensive and working model it is proposed that multiple theories be used. While some models may provide a more global or macro perspective others may be applied for more focused topical areas.
