Welcome to TEKTIC!
The Technology Enabled Knowledge Translation Investigative Centre (TEKTIC) is a collaborative group supported by the Research Unit Infrastructure Award granted by the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research in 2006. Members include researchers, clinicians, academics, decision makers, information technology specialists and trainees from various institutions and organizations.
TEKTIC seeks to understand, explore and innovate on how information and communication technologies used within a healthcare setting – known as eHealth – can be used most effectively, and accelerate the translation of health research evidence into routine health care practice and implementation into the health system. Through on going exploration in five key research theme areas (human technology interface; technology demonstration, research synchronization, evidence based policy translation; and capacity building), TEKTIC will be able to assist in providing best practices for sustainability of the integration of technologies in health care contexts and building caring relationships.
