We'd like to remain with the current colours, however variations in shades and tones of the yellow and grey. The new logo should not be gambling-themed but emphasize the knowledge translation and exchange mandate of our organization, focusing on collaboration and partnerships aspect of knowledge translation and exchange.
Knowledge Translation and Exchange is the process that includes the synthesis, dissemination, exchange, and sound application of knowledge to improve health outcomes, provide more effective services and products and strengthen the health care system.
Investment into research alone does not lead to implementation and positive impacts on health. Knowledge translation and exchange is about creating a return on investments by putting research knowledge into policy, programs and practices.
The process is a complex, dynamic and iterative. There must be constant interaction between researchers and knowledge users (exchange) and a great level of engagement to push knowledge forward.
