Morton Ninomiya, M.E., Maddox, R., Brascoupé, S., Robinson, N., Atkinson, D., Firestone, M., Ziegler, C., & Smylie, J. (2022). Knowledge translation approaches and practices in Indigenous health research: A systematic review. Social Science & Medicine, 301, 1-19.
Research and knowledge translation (KT) continue to be taught, developed, designed, regulated, and conducted in ways that do not prioritize local Indigenous Peoples’ ways of sharing knowledges. This systematic review explored promising and wise practices for KT in the Indigenous health research field. It provides an overview of the varied aims of Indigenous health research, types of KT methodologies and methods used, effectiveness of KT efforts, impacts on KT on Indigenous Peoples’ health and wellness, as well as recommendations and lessons learned.
The KT methods and processes shared in this journal article offer valuable insights and recommendations to those who are in the process of planning or already doing knowledge translation work with Indigenous communities.
