Abstract: The use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) is recommended across healthcare and rehabilitation fields, including rehabilitation counseling. The present article provides a brief explanation of the relationship between EBPs and knowledge translation (KT), and how the use of KT strategies can help narrow the proverbial gap between research and practice. The authors describe how one KT strategy, Communities of Practice (CoPs), can facilitate the dissemination and use of EBPs by bringing together relevant stakeholders. Examples of existing CoPs in diverse fields are described, as well as benefits, barriers, and strategies to developing a CoP.
