Knowledge Mobilisation

Getting the right information to the right people in the right format at the right time, so as to influence decision making.

Knowledge Mobilisation includes dissemination, knowledge transfer and knowledge translation.

Our strategy for knowledge mobilisation/policy-maker engagement is based our partnership work with our stakeholders.

We have developed a Knowledge Mobilisation Toolkit containing an array of tools plus supporting information to help users navigate the Toolkit.

We have shared, promoted and facilitated the use of our Toolkit across a number of networks and have hosted the KM toolkit for multiple researchers from the Oxford and Imperial HPRU in Healthcare Associated Infections and Antimicrobial and from UKHSA.
