Providence Health Care Knowledge Translation Community of Practice

The Providence Health Care Knowledge Translation Community of Practice (PHC KT CoP) welcomes researchers, clinicians and other PHC staff members who want to learn with their colleagues about creative and effective ways to improve patient health through use of research evidence.
