Abstract


  • Knowledge translation can be difficult, particularly during volatile and unstable healthcare reform.

    This can have significant implications. The aim of this paper is to determine what works when

    facilitating knowledge translation. General Practitioners (n=214) were surveyed about their

    awareness, their use, the perceived impact, and the factors that hindered the use of four resources to

    promote sexual healthcare – a placard, online training, face-to-face training, and an educational

    booklet. All four resources were perceived to improve clinical ability. However, the placard appeared

    to have greatest reach and use. Relatively inexpensive tools that provide instructive guidance may

    therefore be an effective and efficient way to facilitate knowledge translation, despite the volatility

    and instability of the Australian healthcare system.
