Impacting Policy by Accelerating Translation


Policies put into place by government, worksites, professional organizations, industry, and health systems profoundly influence the environments in which we grow and live, our health, and our system of health care.

Yet it is often challenging for the decision-makers who create these policies to use the latest research and evidence to guide their decision-making.

When researchers seek to better support these decision-makers, their efforts are often under-resourced and overlooked.

The Impacting Policy by Accelerating Translation (IMPACT) Program aims to be the institutional engine for evidence translation into policy, guidelines, and regulations.
