Cutting Down Knowledge Translation Time: If you have ever published a book chapter or a peer reviewed journal article you know it is a timely process. On average to get a book chapter published it takes about 5 years and a journal article 2 years. In the meantime there is new research being published. Maybe if you are lucky you make it to a conference that keeps you updated, but honestly how many conferences do you go to that really impact or change your practice?

Knowledge translation (KT) is the process involved in moving research from the laboratory bench, research journals, and academic conferences to the hands of providers who can put it to practical use at the bedside. REBEL EM has been dedicated to this initiative for several years and is now happy to be able to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) for several of these activities.
