Communities of Practice: Translating Knowledge for Rehabilitation Professionals

14th Annual National Rehabilitation Educators Conference National Council on Rehabilitation Education (NCRE) March 12-14, 2014  — Manhattan Beach, CA This interactive session will present recent research on the use of Communities of Practice (CoP) as a knowledge translation (KT) tool and provide a brief overview of the role CoP plays in bridging the gap between research and practice. We will explore how CoPs can serve both as a platform for consumers, educators, researchers, counselors, and employers to develop and implement evidence-based practices and as a way to measure the “success” of KT strategies.
