  • Map barriers & facilitators to change using theories and frameworks
  • Systematically select and operationalize implementation strategies
  • Plan for implementation, evaluation and sustainability

PKT is geared towards individuals in any health-related discipline (e.g., health care, public health, mental health) who are responsible for implementing change. Previous participants have come from a range of organizations (e.g., hospitals, funding organizations, and government agencies) with a variety of backgrounds (e.g., educators, managers, clinicians, knowledge brokers, researchers). Since 2015, PKT has been delivered to 133 participants across 6 cohorts of KT practitioners in 4 countries (Australia, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Canada).
