This book is a collection of latest works that show the unique roles and positions of different health care professionals on the arena of health care knowledge transfer. Although the transfer of knowledge-based evidence into practice and service has long been advocated, the gap between the conduct of research and the application of research findings remains a concern. This book describes innovative knowledge transfer projects in real life situations, ranging from health care education, health promotion, disease prevention and control to end-of-life care.
