Evidence in Child Health to Enhance Outcomes

We have a new website - click here to visit www.echokt.ca!

The ECHO research program is focused on improving health outcomes for children with acute health conditions through the application of the best available evidence - a process known as knowledge translation (KT). The overall goal of the ECHO research program is to develop theory about the KT process specific to child health conditions and contexts, which will then be used to develop KT interventions to improve outcomes for patients, their families and the health care system. The important of studying knowledge translation efforts to Canadian children and youth is clear - it is fundamental to ensuring that the best available research evidence informs the health and health care of infants, children, youth and families, as well as improving efficiency within the delivery of health care to children.
