AKE Approach

Go BackWhat is knowledge exchange and transfer?

Knowledge exchange and transfer is about accessing existing knowledge (from research, practice-based and lived experience) and bringing it together so that it can be built upon to create new ways of doing things and moved into practice.

Over the years, other networks and organizations have successfully implemented AKE?s approach to improve their practices, partnerships and communication with their own membership.

What is knowledge transfer and exchange?

This knowledge transfer cycle (Sullivan et al., 2004) illustrates how the AKE is addressing the 5 non-linear phases of knowledge transfer.

  • Knowledge Generation ? the AKE is committed to building reciprocal linkages between the researcher, educator, caregiver and policy maker to inform ADRD research agendas
  • Knowledge Translation ? the AKE is committed to working in partnership with CoP members and relevant stakeholders to identify opportunities for knowledge translation and develop practical, evidence-based resources to facilitate the transfer of knowledge into practice 
  • Knowledge Awareness and Access ? the AKE is committed to leveraging technology in order to provide researchers, educators, caregivers and policy makers with awareness of and access to relevant resources and explicit and tacit knowledge in the field of ADRD 
  • Knowledge Use ? the AKE is committed to facilitating the use of knowledge (transfer of knowledge into practice) by providing knowledge exchange support and resources to CoP members and sub-CoPs 
  • Knowledge Accumulation and Retrieval ? the AKE is committed to accumulating ?stories? from CoP members in order to build on successes and facilitate the development of new partnerships
