Knowledge Translation Center

All Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Model System centers collaborate with the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) to provide scientific results and information to individuals affected by TBI, families, health care professionals and others. A primary objective of the MSKTC is to translate research findings into health information that is easier to understand and use. The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) funds the MSKTC to:

  • Identify health information needs and create free and easily accessible education resources in a variety of formats, such as fact sheets, videos and infocomics.
  • Conduct systematic reviews of research to provide health care professionals, consumers and others with the most current information for making health decisions.
  • Create a database of research publications.
