Table 2 Descriptive statistics for the standardized domain and total KT scores

From: Increased use of knowledge translation strategies is associated with greater research impact on public health policy and practice: an analysis of trials of nutrition, physical activity, sexual health, tobacco, alcohol and substance use interventions

Total KT scorea 89 4.18 (2.06) 4.00 (0, 8)
  1. aTotal KT score ranges from 0 to 8. Response options were scored as 0 = “not at all”, 1 = “a little”/“consulted” or 2 = “substantially”/“member of the research team”, except for domain 7, where the number of dissemination techniques was summed to obtain a total score
