« Ours is the first national study of services for women with substance use issues and their children in Canada. It documents the need for pregnancy, parenting, and child development services in many addictions agencies to better meet the complex needs of this population, and program managers’ preferences for receiving practice-related research evidence through face-to-face contact. The next step in our program of research is to develop and evaluate a knowledge exchange strategy to improve services for women with substance use issues and their children in Canada. As evidence on the effectiveness of integrated programs accumulates, his field presents a unique opportunity to shorten the typically long and winding road from evidence to practice by developing a comprehensive plan spanning the full knowledge translation and exchange continuum, with meaningful involvement of stakeholders in the process (Majumdar et al. 2004). This work ultimately has the potential to enhance service delivery thereby improving the health of a vulnerable, marginalized population of women and children who are at high risk for poor outcomes. » (p. 317)
