Communities of Practice: Translating Knowledge for Rehabilitation Professionals

14th Annual National Rehabilitation Educators Conference National Council on Rehabilitation Education (NCRE) March 12-14, 2014  — Manhattan Beach, CA This interactive session will presented recent research on the use of Communities of Practice (CoP) as a knowledge translation (KT) tool and provided a brief overview of the role CoP plays in bridging the gap between research and practice.
