Promoting action on equity issues: A knowledge-to-action handbook
Promoting action on equity issues: A knowledge-to-action handbook is a toolkit for health professionals that describes common knowledge translation barriers and provides practical guidance and support. The resource builds upon the experiences of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority working to advance a specific equity issue: access to health care for underserved and culturally diverse populations. The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) has also included this toolkit in their Registry of Methods and Tools.
