The Dementia KT Learning Centre is led by the Education and Training theme of the Canadian Dementia Knowledge Translation Network (CDKTN). CDKTN is a network for knowledge translation (KT) and exchange (KE) of research in Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. By bringing together researchers, students, and practitioners from centres across Canada, CDKTN helps researchers get the word out about their work to those who need it most – families and caregivers.
CDKTN is made up of four research themes that together create an integrated network of stakeholders: Education and Training; Patient and Caregiver; Knowledge Exchange; and Policy. The Canadian Dementia Resource and Knowledge Exchange or CDRAKE addresses the Knowledge Exchange theme of the CDKTN, the Patient and Care Partner Centred Knowledge Translation theme provides persons with dementia and care partners with knowledge and empowers them to use it (Kehoe, 2012). A recently established Policy Research theme will work to integrate research findings and KT efforts into the policy sphere.
You can become a member of CDKTN to access the latest research, resources, and care approaches. Learn more about the CDKTN partnering programs, upcoming events and innovative new dementia research in Canada by visiting www.lifeandminds.ca, the web publication of the CDKTN.
The Canadian Dementia Knowledge Translation Network was established in 2008 through generous support from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) grant.
