Knowledge brokers work collaboratively with key stakeholders such as researchers, practitioners, and decision-makers to facilitate the transfer and exchange of information and context. Currently, there is a perceived lack of evidence about how knowledge brokering works and the factors that influence its effectiveness as a knowledge translation mechanism. Thus, the goal of this systematic review and thematic analysis was to improve conceptualization of the knowledge brokering role in health-related settings and describe how knowledge brokers may contribute to effective knowledge translation strategies in health-related settings.
