Methods of Translating Evidence Based Knowledge for Use by Fitness Trainers
Among the many benefits of applying systematic reviews in the profession is the ability to analyze and interpret published data. This type of evaluation is common in other fields, including medicine, physiotherapy, and physical therapy. However, because these evaluations do not go through peer review, they are considered low-quality resources. Consequently, they are not recommended for the purposes of translation. Luckily, there are a few resources that help.
The first step in the translation process is the systematic review of the evidence. The process typically ends in the creation of an action guide or practice guide, which is the next step. The authors of the book used qualitative methods to explore the requirements and expectations of practitioners, policymakers, and researchers. In addition, they consulted with practitioners, research-based publications, and other experts to determine how they could best utilize the information contained in the research. The results of this research were then evaluated to establish whether the resources met the needs of their target audience.
Moreover, participants in the social user group committed to systematically reflect on the process of knowledge translation. This was achieved through the use of various research designs. The subcontractor provided access to various stakeholders, organized the practical and logistical aspects of CSLs, and facilitated regular interaction among users. As a result, a more effective and successful translation process resulted. This article focuses on the methods of translating evidence based knowledge for the use of fitness trainers.
The translation process is crucial for the development of effective evidence-based knowledge. The literature describes various strategies that facilitate knowledge translation and promote the uptake of research findings by practitioners. In some cases, a change in organizational structures can help the translation process. Alternatively, changes in the governing structure of organizations may be necessary to encourage implementation of research guidelines. If these steps are carried out, the translation process will be more efficient.
The research process is a critical component of the research process. It is important to consider the context of the issue and the nature of the problem. The issue domain describes the characteristics and context of the issue. Other groups’ views and orientations to the research are important. There are many challenges involved in the translation process. Insufficient knowledge in the issue domain can lead to poor health outcomes. The implementation of evidence-based knowledge can be successful if the researcher takes this approach.
Among the research outputs, the Belgian project produced a practical handbook for community sport practitioners, ten publications in professional journals, and a two-page project flyer. The researchers also conducted a symposium in Belgium, where they brought together local practitioners and international experts to exchange their knowledge. Despite the lack of formal education, the quality of evidence-based knowledge is not sufficient. There must be a strong link between research and practice.
