The Conference, which may be the first of its kind to be organized under the aegis of a specific accredited medical specialty, will provide an opportunity for participants to not only learn about, but participate in, the development of a Knowledge Translation research agenda and coordinated initiative. The Conference has received funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the National Institutes of Health and the Canadian Institutes for Health Research.
