Anaby, D., Khetani, M., Piskur, B., van der Holst, M., Bedell, G., Schakel, F., ... & Imms, C. (2021). Towards a paradigm shift in pediatric rehabilitation: Accelerating the uptake of evidence on participation into routine clinical practice. Disability and Rehabilitation, 1-12.
Using a structured roadmap, Anaby et al. (2021) provide a knowledge translation guide to promote health and wellbeing in childhood-onset disability. The basis of this roadmap was derived from the Five-factor framework for predicting implementation outcomes, as well as the Cultural Cone framework and the Knowledge-to-Action model. The goal is to expedite the uptake of participation evidence into policy and practice. Anaby et al. found that collaboration through a five-way partnership of “family-clinician-manager-community leader-policymaker” is key to achieving positive outcomes for change in practice focused on participation. This roadmap can facilitate children, families, policymakers, administrators, and service providers to bridge the knowledge-to-practice gaps in pediatric rehabilitation.
