Implementation in action: Moving evidence into practice

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 third 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  is Dr. Genevieve Creighton who is the Knowledge Translation Manager at Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research. In this workshop we will review the key stages of implementation practice within KT. We will also discuss the importance of implementation strategies and learn practical skills for forming effective implementation teams.


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