Translating youth mental health research into practice

In youth mental health, and the broader health field, there is often a gap between the best evidence from cutting-edge research and how this knowledge is applied ‘on-the-ground’ in clinical practice. ‘Knowledge translation’ is about trying to bridge that gap by assisting services and clinicians to implement best practices that are adapted to their particular context. This research bulletin provides an overview of the key literature regarding what approaches and techniques are most effective for translating research evidence into practice in youth mental health.
