LANDRY, Réjean et al. The knowledge-value chain: a conceptual framework for knowledge translation in health. Bull World Health Organ [online]. 2006, vol.84, n.8, pp.597-602. ISSN 0042-9686.

This article briefly discusses knowledge translation and lists the problems associated with it. Then it uses knowledge-management literature to develop and propose a knowledge-value chain framework in order to provide an integrated conceptual model of knowledge management and application in public health organizations. The knowledge-value chain is a non-linear concept and is based on the management of five dyadic capabilities: mapping and acquisition, creation and destruction, integration and sharing/transfer, replication and protection, and performance and innovation.
