Knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE) is a burgeoning practice for researchers in many fields. Work and health research funders have indicated that knowledge transfer activities are valued. Funders often request specific information about targeted audiences and how the research findings will be communicated and disseminated to the identified groups. This project proposes to examine the use of research within the Ontario prevention system and the KTE practices of researchers in work and health. A broad model of engagement will be employed involving dialogue with key knowledge users/stakeholders and using the framework of an existing self assessment questionnaire to be adapted for use in work and health research.
