The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), under its Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) Program, periodically issues a funding opportunity entitled “Projects for Translating the Findings and Products of Disability and Rehabilitation Research and Development into Practice.” The aim of awards in this NIDILRR funding category is to promote the use or adoption of findings from NIDILRR-sponsored research or development projects. The KTER Center works with these projects to share information about their knowledge translation plans with other NIDILRR grantees and interested researchers.

In this webcast, Dr. James Krause discusses the knowledge translation strategies employed on the project, A Multidisciplinary Approach to Translating New Knowledge into Practice to Promote Health and Well-being after Spinal Cord Injury.  Archives of previous webcasts in this series are available on the KTDRR Website: 2016 Webcast, 2017 Webcast, and 2018 Webcasts.
