The author examines the potential of theatre as a means of knowledge translation (KT). In the Healthy Balance Research Program, a community-university research alliance, the play served as a means of KT. Though the play was successful in meeting some of the program's KT objectives, aspects of the performance can be reimagined in order to maximize the KT potential of theatre.

L'auteure se penche sur les possibilités qu'offre le théâtre comme outil de traduction des connaissances (TC). Dans le cadre du programme de recherche sur un équilibre sain, une initiative conjointe menée par des interlocuteurs communautaires et universitaires, une pièce de théâtre intitulée Balancing Act [Question d'équilibre] a servi d'outil de TC. Bien que cette pièce ait donné d'excellents résultats quant à l'atteinte de certains objectifs du programme liés à la TC, certains aspects du spectacle peuvent être revisités en vue de maximiser les possibilités qu'offre le théâtre en matière de TC.

    Currently published issues of the CJNR (1969-2015) are being moved to the McGill online archives where they will be hosted in perpetuity. This migration should be completed by Spring 2016. During this transition, all issues of CJNR remain accessible to our readers as before:

    1) Past issues of CJNR from 2003 to December 2015 through ingentaconnect.

    2) Issues from 2002 to 1969 can be accessed through the CJNR digital archive.

    We understand that this is a significant change. Please be confident that all parties are working diligently to make this a seamless transition that will further advance the scope and impact of CJNR.

    Thank you.
