Moving the needle: Providing evidence based care to older adults with behavioral issues through knowledge translation

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

Implementing evidence based practices into practice settings is exceedingly difficult. Knowledge translation is a framework used for moving practices from the literature into the real world. This article discusses how six articles in this special issue of Gerontology and Geriatrics Education use various knowledge translation approaches to implement evidence based practices in older adults with behavioral health issues including dementia, delirium and serious mental illness across a variety of settings, as well as lessons learned for future knowledge translation and implementation science studies.
