This is the first version of an innovative tool for researchers and knowledge translation professionals to use for detailed KT planning that incorporates project management concepts. The tool combines KT planning aspects from 2 well established KT planning tools, as well as project management concepts from 5 different examples of project charters. Originally developed for use by NeuroDevNet NCE's High Impact Projects, this .pdf allows for the nesting of KT goals within research project goals, under the broader network strategic goals. Sections include: Research goals, KT Goals, in-scope and out-of-scope activities, project team members and roles/responsibilities as well as level of KT expertise, KT activities and target audiences, intended outcomes, budget for KT activities that automatically calculate row totals and grand total needed to accomplish all KT tasks, risks and mitigation plan, rationale for and start/end dates for each KT activity, and an opportunity to create indicators using the Co-Produced Pathway to Impact evaluation framework for each stage of the research/KT process. This .pdf is form-fillable for ease of use, and also features linked tables that fill in automatically based on the same information that was entered in previous tables (to improve efficiency of use). It is intended for use with one research project at a time, and ideally should be used by the entire project team including partners and embedded KT professional support.
