Knowledge Translation (KT) Basics

February 13, 2017 - February 14, 2017

This is a Non-Sponsored Event

Dr. Julia Moore PhD & Dr. Sharon Straus MD, FRCPC, MSc

Knowledge Translation (KT) is a bridge between research and real-world practice. It addresses both the dissemination of information and the implementation of evidence into practice in an effort to strengthen health systems and improve health outcomes. The body of evidence on what works and how best to implement interventions is growing, yet there is a lack of capacity on how to apply KT in practice.

The KT Basics workshop, offered by the KT Program at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Canada, is a 1.5-day workshop designed for health professionals and students aiming to gain knowledge about the foundations of KT, focusing on the implementation of research evidence. Through interactive group activities and lectures, workshop participants will learn the fundamentals of KT, including key definitions and frameworks, how to assess and prioritize needs, select high quality evidence, and define the practice change.

This workshop will be beneficial to anyone interested in learning more about how KT relates to their own work. We welcome professionals and students involved in all dimension of health care (acute care, long-term care, public health, mental health, etc.) to attend.

Cost: Professionals: $725.00 ; Students: $350.00 (travel & accommodation not included)

City: Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute at St. Michael’s Hospital, 209 Victoria St. M5B 1T8 Toronto, Canada
