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.
