While many professions, fields, and disciplines emphasize knowledge mobilization (KMb), or the application and use of research, there is still much to learn about what key skills and competencies are required to engage in this kind of work. There is little consensus on what KMb work actually entails. In this presentation, I share findings from a 2015 Q-methodological study on KMb and discuss implications for social work. It is my draft manuscript to be presented at the CASWE annual conference in May/June 2018 (Regina SK).
