Formatted abstract
Reducing the evidence-to-practice gap to improve consumer health outcomes is currently a key policy agenda of health services worldwide. The National Health and Medical Research Centre (NHMRC) Centre for Clinical Research Excellence (CCRE) in Aphasia Rehabilitation is a research program that aims to increase the aphasia research evidence base and facilitate the translation of the best available evidence into practice. In collaboration with clinicians and consumers, the CCRE Aphasia is developing the Australian Aphasia Rehabilitation Pathway (AARP). The AARP is a consumer-focused, evidence-based tool that aims to improve outcomes for people with aphasia and their families. The AARP employs a knowledge transfer and exchange approach and strategic collaboration between research producers and users through a community of practice (CoP) to maximise implementation of the AARP.
