Abstract: The mission of the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) is to enhance the rigor and relevance of the model systems research and to communicate this research effectively to all potential audiences. This project has three goals: (1) enhanced understanding of the quality and relevance of the findings of NIDRR’s Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Burn Model Systems (MS) programs; (2) enhanced knowledge of advances in SCI, TBI, and Burn research among consumers, clinicians, and other end users of such information; and (3) the centralization of SCI, TBI, and Burn Model Systems resources for effective and uniform dissemination and technical assistance. These goals serve to guide the Center’s strategies and activities to create an impact on the target population, including the MS grantees and other researchers as well as the broader audience of people with disabilities and their families, clinicians and practitioners, and policymakers and advocates through services in three areas. Service Area 1 uses a systematic approach to identify, evaluate, and synthesize evidence-based research findings. Tasks under Service Area 1 include: (1) establishing and maintaining a Technical Review Committee, (2) establishing standards for systematic reviews, (3) conducting reviews and publishing results, and (4) conducting quick turnaround reviews. Service Area 2 offers a strategic approach in knowledge translation (KT) support to grantees. Tasks under Service Area 2 include: (1) KT technical assistance and training, (2) communities of practice focused on each injury area among all audiences, and (3) conducting consumer needs research. Service Area 3 creates a central location to host all the KT resources and uses a multifaceted approach to knowledge dissemination, in order to ensure that audiences have timely access to relevant information that (1) helps facilitate the knowledge translation process; (2) informs decisions surrounding rehabilitation options in the areas of SCI, TBI, and Burn; and (3) informs the professional practices to key audiences. Tasks under Service Area 2 include: (1) web site redesign and maintenance, (2) MSKTC multimedia development, (3) an online dissemination toolkit development, and (4) outreach and dissemination.
