Knowledge Translation

Knowledge translation is the process of creating and sharing knowledge as well as supporting its ethical application. The purpose of knowledge translation is to get the right evidence, to the right people, at the right time to enable evidence-informed decision making. This is important because health programs and policies that are informed by evidence are more effective, cost-efficient, minimise harm, and contribute to improved health outcomes.

SiREN developed this knowledge translation strategy to support the Western Australian sexual health and blood-borne virus sector to apply the best available evidence to decision-making and to generate new evidence on what works. Through this strategy, SiREN aims to support improvements in policy and practice to achieve better health outcomes.
