National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools: The Registry of Methods and Tools


The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) in Ontario, Canada, provides products and services to facilitate knowledge translation and evidence-informed decisionmaking for public health practitioners, policymakers, and researchers.

This Web site from NCCMT includes the Registry of Methods and Tools, a searchable, online collection of methods and tools for knowledge translation in public health. The Registry’s goals are to help public health practitioners do the following:
  • Communicate new knowledge to clients and colleagues
  • Support innovation uptake in organizations
  • Synthesize and appraise public health–related research
  • Apply a new technique for working with community partners
  • Summarize relevant evidence for public health policy decisions
The Registry contains summary statements of knowledge translation methods and tools to help busy practitioners use evidence in their practice. The Registry identifies and describes effective resources for knowledge translation, making them easier to find and use.
