A workshop to support your understanding and use of knowledge translation skills.1

Knowledge translation plays an important role in maximizing the impact of health research. Studies have shown only 14 percent of health research findings enter day-to-day practice, with a gap of 17 to 20 years separating discovery and implementation.  

Join us at the second in a series of four workshops to improve the use of your research evidence in practice through a better understanding of knowledge translation. Our guest speaker Ms. Alison Hoens, Knowledge Translation Specialist at the BC SUPPORT Unit, will give you practical tips, resources, and examples to increase the reach of your research by focusing on knowledge translation and patient-oriented research (POR).2 

This second session will focus on “Assessing barriers and facilitators to KT in POR

Knowledge translation (KT) — the broad range of activities meant to improve the use of research evidence in practice, policy, and further research

2 Patient-Oriented Research — Research that is done in partnership with patients, answers research questions that matter to patients, and aims to improve health care.
