In this presentation, François Benoit considers the knowledge-sharing program of the National Collaborating Centres, particularly from the perspective of bridging research with practitioners and decision-makers. He uses the notion of knowledge brokering to show how the Centres synthesize and communicate knowledge to those who can use it in their work. Interestingly, he shows the knowledge translation process as being structurally similar to the way in which the weather is predicted, represented and then communicated to the public.

He then goes on to present the work of the National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy as one applied example of the process of knowledge translation.
