Knowledge mobilization in bridging patient–practitioner–researcher boundaries: A systematic integrative review protocol

Ben Appleby, Andrew Booth, Fiona Cowdell
Aim To review published literature to identify when and how patients and healthcare practitioners have been involved in knowledge mobilization activity and the impact this may have had on their care. Background Improving patient outcomes, satisfaction and quality of care is increasingly reliant on shared decision-making between health professionals and patients. Knowledge mobilization, at its simplest: “moving knowledge to where it can be most useful” is a growing field of academic study. To date, it appears that much effort has focused on moving knowledge from researchers to healthcare practitioners. Knowledge mobilization to patients is currently under-researched. Design Integrative review. Review Methods Methods of integrative review will be used to address the review problem. PRISMA guidelines were used as a general framework to guide structuring and reporting the review. Elements of method-specific reporting guidelines for specific streams of evidence will be used as required. Discussion This review will aim to provide a broad and deep understanding of patient–practitioner–researcher engagement in knowledge mobilization activity. This synthesis of the extant literature should offer insights into the optimum characteristics of methods for bridging patient–practitioner–researcher boundaries in knowledge mobilization action.
