Abstract

Background: Knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE) is a process of making relevant research information available and accessible for use in practice or policy. Integrated KTE, where knowledge users are engaged in the research process, is considered to better facilitate uptake and use. e objective of this article is to describe a fully integrated KTE approach developed over the past 20 years.

Analysis: A case study approach describes knowledge user engagement, as well as the integration of communications within KTE.

Conclusion and implications: The organizational KTE approach described is flexible and can be adapted to a variety of research areas.
