Putting KT Strategies to the Test: The P.I.E.C.E.S Knowledge Translation Project
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 final workshop to improve the use of your research evidence in practice through a better understanding of knowledge translation. In this workshop, facilitated by Dr. Genevieve Creighton, Knowledge Translation Manager at Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, Lillian Hung, a clinical nurse specialist, will discuss the implementation of the P.I.E.C.E.S project within an older adult tertiary mental health program. She will talk about some of the successes and challenges of putting KT strategies into practice, offer some recommendations and answer your burning KT questions.
