Knowledge Utilization Studies Program

Knowledge Utilization Studies Program

The Knowledge Utilization Studies Program (KUSP) is a funded applied health services research program focusing on knowledge translation in organizations. Established in 2000, in the Faculty of Nursing, University of Alberta, KUSP is focused on the development, dissemination, exchange and application of knowledge to improve health outcomes, provide more effective health services and strengthen the health care system. The overarching goals of KUSP are to develop knowledge translation theory and strategies to increase the use of research to improve quality of care, quality of life/end-of-life for the frail, vulnerable elderly in nursing home settings and quality of work life for their care providers. These goals are achieved by using a fully integrated KT model of research and governance.
