Translating Research Into Practice
On average it takes 17 years for new medical research findings to be adopted by practicing clinicians.
In a profession where minutes save lives, 17 years is too long.
In light of that, a new type of research scientist has arisen. Their focus is not on doing traditional primary research. Instead, they focus on discovering, interpreting, analyzing and distributing the information that traditional researchers have already done in order to close the 17-year gap. The catchy acronym for this type of scholarly activity is “TRIP” – Translating Research Into Practice.
