Knowledge Translation Workshop

Knowledge Translation Workshop

 March 21 (Saskatoon) and March 22 (Regina)

The Saskatchewan Centre for Patient-Oriented Research (SCPOR) is pleased to invite Dr Gabrielle Zimmermann to Regina and Saskatoon to conduct this informative workshop where participants are encouraged to bring their own knowledge translation projects to work on, or just come ready to learn about knowledge translation, both end of grant and integrated. Gabrielle is SPOR Program Coordinator, Knowledge Translation and Implementation Science at the Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit Knowledge Translation Platform. She has wide-ranging experience in research and Knowledge Translation (KT) that encompasses the knowledge to action cycle; from creating and synthesizing evidence to facilitating the implementation of evidence into practice. Her experience includes critical appraisal of evidence, integrated KT proposals and end-of-grant KT plans.

This workshop consists of two related parts: in the morning we will explore Integrated KT and in the afternoon, how to create an end-of-grant KT plan. Lunch will be provided. Registration costs are covered by SCPOR. Please note registration is limited – if you are registered and need to cancel, please let us know so we can give your spot to someone else.

Morning session: Integrated Knowledge Translation (iKT)

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn what integrated Knowledge Translation (iKT) is, when to do it and when not to do it as well as key considerations for developing an iKT proposal (i.e how to do it).

Specific learning objectives:

  • Describe what integrated KT (iKT) is.
  • Explain why knowledge users should be engaged in your research.
  • Identify which knowledge users you will engage in your research and start to create a plan.
  • Recognize what should be included in an iKT proposal

Afternoon session: How to create an End-of-Grant KT Plan

In this hands-on workshop participants will learn the key elements of an End-of-Grant KT plan and how to develop them into a cohesive plan in a grant proposal.

Specific learning objectives:

  1. Identify the target audience and key messages for your research findings.
  2. Decide which strategy is appropriate for your research findings: diffusion, dissemination, implementation.
  3. Create a draft end-of-grant KT plan for your research findings.

Please note: the workshops are now full, we are only taking names for the wait list in case of a participant cancelling.
