Knowledge translation and exchange in the Canadian microbial food safety system: A quantitative assessment of researcher awareness, attitude, and activities with government policymakers
Knowledge translation and exchange (KTE) is a process through which research evidence can more effectively inform decision making in policy and practice environments. A telephone survey of Canadian microbial food safety researchers was conducted in 2009 to examine aspects of researcher KTE activities with government policymakers. Overall, researcher awareness of and engagement in KTE activities was high, although engagement was mainly through end-of-research dissemination activities rather than throughout the research process (integrated knowledge translation) and engagement in some high-quality KTE activities was low. Government researchers were significantly more likely to engage in KTE activities with federal policymakers and did so with greater frequency than non-government researchers.
