Translational scholarship and a palliative approach: Enlisting the Knowledge-As-Action framework

Reimer-Kirkham, S., Hartrick-Doane, G.Antifeau, E., Pesut, B., Porterfield, P., Roberts, D., Stajduhar, K., & Wikjord, N. (2015). Advances in Nursing Science. Volume 38 Issue 3, 187-202. doi: 10.1097/ANS.0000000000000077


Based on a retheorized epistemology for knowledge translation (KT) that problematizes the “know-do gap” and conceptualizes the knower, knowledge, and action as inseparable, this paper describes the application of the Knowledge-As-Action Framework. When applied as a heuristic device to support an inquiry process, the framework with the metaphor of a kite facilitates a responsiveness to the complexities that characterize KT. Examples from a KT demonstration project on the integration of a palliative approach at 3 clinical sites illustrate the interrelatedness of 6 dimensions—the local context, processes, people, knowledge, fluctuating realities, and values.
