This blog post is based on the Evidence & Policy article, ‘Creating an action plan to advance knowledge translation in a domestic violence research network: a deliberative dialogue‘.

Addressing domestic violence is not like some public health strategies that can be addressed with a straightforward prevention strategy. Although there are well over sixty different models of knowledge translation (KT) in the literature, a recent review of KT found the voices of survivors and diverse populations were often absent in KT examples.


To address this gap, we asked the following two questions of a domestic violence research network:


  • Is there a consensus regarding a coherent knowledge translation framework for a domestic violence research network?

  • What are the key actions that a domestic violence research network could take to enhance knowledge translation?

In our Evidence & Policy article, ‘Creating an action plan to advance knowledge translation in a domestic violence research network: a deliberative dialogue’, we explored these two questions using a method known as deliberative dialogue. Deliberative dialogue is a group process used to blend research evidence with practice-based experience.
