The translation of research so that it informs public policy, the organization of services, clinical practice, and parenting is a major challenge. Prevention and early intervention is a case in point. Despite a robust and growing body of research that shows the impact of the early years of a child's life on a range of outcomes throughout the life course, in most jurisdictions there remains a considerable gap between what we know and what we do. This presentation will outline some of the challenges—and examples of strategies—in translating research to the various stakeholder groups.
