Knowledge to Care (K2C)

The Knowledge to Care (K2C) cluster develops the theory and practice of evidence-informed healthcare. We strategically integrate six ways of working that underpin contemporary healthcare to inform our activity. The K2C cluster views knowledge mobilisation, co-creation, patient and public involvement and engagement, implementation science, improvement science and impact as complementary and interlocking facets of evidence-informed health care. K2C encapsulates different facets of ‘evidence-based practice’.

Knowledge to care

Our mission is to operationalise evidence-informed care, this is complex and challenging. Our expertise allows us to use a repertoire of techniques to support healthcare practitioners to optimise care.      

We are part of the West Midlands Knowledge Mobilisation Collaboration and as part of work closely with Keele IAU and WM ARC
