Knowledge Translation (KT) Basics

Presented by:

Knowledge Translation Program, St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Canada

Workshop Overview

Knowledge translation (KT) is a bridge between research and real-world practice in an effort to strengthen health systems and improve health outcomes. But how do you apply evidence? At the KT Program, we believe that we can implement change in the health system better by thinking about change differently. Our approach to KT is rooted in theory and science, but our application of KT is uniquely pragmatic and focused on real-world impact. Our approach to training involves empowering individuals and organizations in the health system with knowledge and support on how to do KT.

Knowledge Translation (KT) Basics is a 2-day workshop on the fundamentals of implementing change using best practices in KT. In KT Basics, participants will learn how to:

ü Identify key KT definitions

ü Assess and prioritize implementation needs

ü Use appropriate methods to assess the quality of available evidence

ü Define the scope of change and ideal practices to be implemented

ü Identify key processes that inform the selection of implementation strategies

 

This workshop will benefit anyone interested in learning more about how KT can be applied to their own work. Professionals and full-time graduate students involved in all dimensions of health (e.g., acute care, long-term care, public health, mental health, etc.) are welcome to attend.

Note: this workshop will not focus on best practices in disseminating evidence/end-of-grant KT.

SOSIDO FORUM


We're pleased to let you know that CVAA is participating in an online knowledge sharing network called Sosido (www.sosido.com). Sosido was created for and by healthcare associations, to speed knowledge transfer, promote collaboration, highlight the important work and research by members, and bridge silos by publicizing the contributions of each specialty group to the broader healthcare community. CVAA joins a growing network of associations and research groups on Sosido, including the Canadian Association of Nurses in Oncology (CANO).

CVAA members will receive:

  • - A weekly email digest summarizing all activity in the CVAA community. You don’t have to log in to participate, and anything that’s important will come to your inbox, including:

  • - Updates on all publications authored by CVAA members that week. Sosido automatically delivers a current and complete snapshot of the work of our CVAA community.

  • - A summary of new articles released that week from journals chosen by you.

  • - Access to a secure CVAA members-only forum to ask and answer questions.

(Watch a slide tour of Sosido.)

Please note that you can unsubscribe from emails or remove yourself from the network at any time.

We look forward to staying in touch with you through the CVAA community on Sosido, and we welcome your questions and feedback.
