The Center for Knowledge Management (CKM) has expertise in not only translating information for patients, but also in helping clinicians better communicate with patients. With individuals that have advanced degrees in science and medicine, as well as research and practical experience in the fields of health literacy, genetic literacy and learning styles, we are uniquely qualified to aid the medical center in communicating information to lay audiences. By tailoring information for a targeted audience, you improve their ability to understand the information and communicate it to others.
In addition to translating information, we also train anyone who wants to improve their ability to communicate to those outside of their field, be it other clinicians and researchers, patients or consumers, or the media. Please see our training page for more information.
