Dr. Ian Graham is Vice-President of the Knowledge Translation Portfolio at Canadian Institutes of Health Research. At CIHR, he is responsible for knowledge translation, partnerships and citizen engagement, communication and public outreach, and pan-institute affairs and initiatives. Dr Graham is on leave from his position as Associate Professor in the School of Nursing, University of Ottawa and Senior Social Scientist in the Clinical Epidemiology Program of the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. He holds cross-appointments in the Departments of Medicine and Epidemiology & Community Medicine and is an adjunct associate professor in the School of Nursing at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario. Dr. Graham obtained a B.A. in sociology from McGill University, an M.A. in sociology from the University of Victoria, and a Ph.D. in medical sociology from McGill University. Dr. Graham's research has largely focused on knowledge translation (the process of research use) and conducting applied research on strategies to increase implementation of research findings and evidence-based practice. He has also advanced KT science through the developed two planned action models, the Ottawa Model of Research Use and more recently the Knowledge to Action Model, as well as the Practice Guideline Evaluation and Adaptation Cycle. Specific research projects have related to the adaptation, implementation, and quality appraisal of clinical practice guidelines, as well as the uptake of guidelines and decision support tools by practitioners. He has published over 200 peer reviewed papers. He is co-editor of Knowledge Translation in Health Care published by Wiley-Blackwell (2009).
