Knowledge Uptake and Use at the Organizational Level

Knowledge acquisition, assimilation, and use at the organizational level

A scoping review to map the evidence on how to measure and define absorptive capacity of an organization related to the adoption and implementation of a program, policy, or practice change.

Findings from this review will inform a KT-indicator framework being developed by Health Canada.  It is anticipated that the research findings will be also useful to anyone developing tools to improve implementation processes and outcomes.
