Knowledge Translation

Knowledge Translation involves using different strategies to get evidence into practice. The dissemination of research findings is an important step in this process. Information in the following sections below may help you learn more about knowledge translation related to respiratory therapy practice:

Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) Knowledge Translation
Guidelines for Reporting Research
Respiratory Journals
Respiratory Therapists Publications

The RTSO’s Research Committee endorses the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) approach to Knowledge Translation (KT). One of the most common approaches is to publish results in a peer reviewed medical journal. Guidelines for reporting research are available to help both the novice and experienced researcher prepare results for reports and publications. A number of Canadian respiratory therapists have been authors and/or co-authors of publications, some of which are listed below Respiratory Therapists’ Publications.

Through the Research Committee, the RTSO supports an annual Knowledge Translation Award to help respiratory therapists translate results of their work into action!

Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) Knowledge Translation

As well as publishing, there are a number of other KT strategies with a wealth of resources related to all aspects of KT on the CIHR website.

Guidelines for Reporting Research

When preparing to submit a manuscript for publication it is important for authors to follow the specific instructions for manuscript submission provided by the journal and to also consider utilizing the following guidelines when reporting specific types of study designs.

Respiratory Journals

The RTSO Research Committee advocates for respiratory therapists to publish their research. Reporting research specific to the respiratory therapy profession including the evaluation of new RT practices, equipment or roles can help to expand and advance the RT profession and improve respiratory care. The following is a list of journals that Respiratory therapists may want to consider if interested in publishing an article related to the respiratory therapy field. These journals can also be accessed for ongoing learning related to the field of respiratory therapy. There are many others that are focused on particular topics or areas such as critical care, emergency medicine, quality improvement, etc.

FYI Ontario’s Allied Health Professional Development Fund is trialing free access to an Electronic Health Library for healthcare professionals licensed to practice in Ontario. Current databases made accessible through the Electronic Health Library include MEDLINE, SportDISCUS and CINAHL. The Electronic Health Library also provides access to PUBMED, which comprises more than 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Access to the DynaMed™ database may be extended after the three-month trial period ending on December 31, 2013.

Respiratory Therapists Publications

Many respiratory therapists in Ontario are involved in many aspects of research, evaluation and/or quality improvement initiatives. Peer-reviewed articles are evaluated by several researchers or subject specialists in the academic community prior to being accepted for publication. It provides a form of self-regulation by qualified members of a profession within a relevant field to maintain standards of quality, improve performance and provide credibility.

The following are a number of peer-reviewed publications with respiratory therapists as first or co-authors. We hope these might serve as examples of and inspiration for RRT contributions to “the evidence”! Please feel free to email additional citations for inclusion in the list to office@rtso.org .
