CIPSRT shares its Strategy for Knowledge Translation (KT) for 2022-2027.
At the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment (CIPSRT), we are excited to share the Knowledge Translation (KT) strategy that will guide our KT and knowledge mobilization efforts for the next five years.
Effective knowledge translation (KT) is designed to make knowledge users (e.g., PSP, their leaders, their families, policymakers) aware of research results that can be used to facilitate change. KT helps to bridge gaps between research and practice, allowing knowledge to be mobilized into action.
CIPSRT’s KT strategy has four main areas of focus:
- Creating Awareness
- Facilitate awareness of CIPSRT and CISPRT activities among PSP, their leaders, and their families, as well as academics, researchers, and clinicians interested in supporting PSP mental health and wellbeing.
- Building Networks
- Create networking and collaboration opportunities for PSP, their leaders, and their families, as well as academics, researchers, and clinicians.
- Improving Research Knowledge Sharing
- Increase research accessibility among PSP stakeholder audiences.
- Supporting PSP Mental Health and Wellbeing
- Use research evidence to create tools, guides, training, and mental health treatments tailored for PSP.
By using these areas of focus as a roadmap, CIPSRT can plan KT initiatives that will benefit PSP, PSP leadership and PSP families for years to come.
“CIPSRT has developed a KT strategy that, in consultation with the PSSC and ARCNAC, will inform KT planning over the next 5 years, “ said Dr. Nick Jones, CIPSRT’s ’Executive Director. “It is critical that CIPSRT provide the knowledge gained from CIHR-CIPSRT consortium researchers across the country to those who can use the knowledge to produce positive mental health and wellbeing outcomes for our PSP.”

CIPSRT (Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment), located at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, serves as the Knowledge Exchange Hub to help current public safety personnel, their leaders and their families to maintain and improve their mental health and well-being.
