Abstract

Attention to collaborative approaches to encouraging evidence use in healthcare practice are gaining traction. The inherent complexities in collaborative and networked approaches to knowledge translation (KT) have been embraced by Kitson and colleagues in their complexity network model. In this commentary, the potential of complexity as presented by Kitson et al within their model is considered. The utility of such a model will be contingent upon how easy users find it to understand and apply to their challenge, and doing so in a way that is useful to not only help with explanation, but also with prediction.
