Abstract

There are many challenges in minimizing the gaps between scientific evidence and better health outcomes. The translation of knowledge (TC) is the movement that knowledge makes in an organizational context in favor of its effective application. This study aimed to analyze the occurrence of CT in the Executive Secretariat of Health Surveillance of Pernambuco (SEVS / PE), focusing on 10 evaluative surveys on Health Surveillance programs, produced in the Master's Degree in Health Evaluation of the Institute of Comprehensive Medicine Prof. Fernando Figueira, from 2011 to 2015. For this purpose, a semi-structured interview script was used, addressing 7 managers and 10 SEVS-PE technicians. In the analysis of this qualitative case study, a CT model was used, and overlapping it, a theoretical structure of use-influence of the evaluation. In eight studies analyzed, evidence was categorized into five phases of CT. Only the evaluation stage of the use of knowledge was not evidenced. Different types of use, dimensions and influence levels of the evaluations were reported. Among the changes occurred, the following were reported: creation of new agendas, elaboration of protocols, change of work process, creation of new flows, hiring of new professionals.
