  Introduction: The gap between knowledge and action is a challenge that knowledge translation can be a response to it. Knowledge translation is a process that leads knowledge to practice and makes data applicable. The present work was performed in 2014 to investigate the status of knowledge translation in Qazvin University of Medical Sciences from faculty's perspective.

  Methods : This study is a descriptive research. The studied population included the whole faculty of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences who were selected by census. The research tool was the knowledge translation questionnaire prepared by the Knowledge Translation Committee of Tehran University of Medical Sciences which its validity and reliability were confirmed again for this research. After demographic questions, the questionnaire was set in three parts including: "identifying needs of audiences and conversing these needs into research projects" (11 questions), "producing useful evidences for decision making" (9 questions), and "using results of researches by final users" (22 questions). To compare full score abtained from knowledge translation with demographic variable, t statistical analysis and multiple analysis of variance were used.

  Results : The results showed that the average score for the part of identifying needs of audiences and converting it into research projects was 2.46, the average score for the part of producing useful evidences for decision making was 2.86, the average score for the part of using results of researches by final users was 2.34, and finally the average total score was 2.47.

  conclusion : The results of the study indicated that the status of knowledge translation in Qazvin University of Medical Sciences from viewpoint of its faculty members is far from the desirable status. Pursuing proposed alternatives and adopting incentive policies for researchers to disseminate results of researches to users can help to fill the gap between knowledge and action.
