C aring can occur in a variety of ways, not least of which is through evidence based resources developed using a knowledge creation, translation and dissemination approach.
We have information, resources, and clinical tools designed to assist in customizing treatment approaches available in a number of different languages. We’d like to thank our many colleagues and supporters around the world who have aided us in translating these documents into their languages. We will continue to post translations of the materials on our site for use by health care professionals globally.
Let us know if you’d like to get involved in translating any of the materials you see here or have any feedback, comments or suggestions suggestions.
