Citizens, health care systems and industry will only benefit from health research if research findings are appropriately translated into healthcare policy and practice. MCHP plays a very active role in knowledge translation in Manitoba by sharing evidence from published MCHP reports
with health and social policy planners and decision makers throughout the province. Through initiatives like The Need To Know Team
, and several annual knowledge translation workshops, MCHP builds and maintains relationships with key representatives from every Regional Health Authority in the province, as well as key figures from the Department of Health and other departments in the Manitoba Government.
