KidsAction Coaching is best described as a ‘Knowledge Translation’ project. Knowledge Translation (KT) is an ‘implementation science’ which describes the process of taking previous research, knowledge, and findings and combining them into applications that are aimed at improving health of the participants and passing over into the hands of people and organizations who can put it to practical use.
One of the most common questions we receive from parents, coaches, and organizations is regarding our basis in research, and what that means for them. KidsAction Coaching is not a research study. However, there are aspects of the project that require research and evaluation to ensure our project is achieving what it is aiming to do. All these aspects of research are entirely voluntary, and only concern the KidsAction Coaching approach. All matters related to research will be made clearly known and are not required to successfully partake in KidsAction Coaching.
