KT needs assessment draws more than 1,200 responses

2 April 2012

MSFHR would like to thank all those who took the time to complete our Knowledge Translation (KT) Needs Assessment Survey. We would also like to thank the individuals at our partner organizations who broadly distributed the survey throughout their organizations and networks. The survey is now closed.

In total, more than 1,200 people from across the province responded to the survey, providing a tremendous amount of feedback. The target audience included both BC health researchers and those who use health research evidence in their work. The overwhelming response we received clearly indicates a strong desire for KT skills training and resources among our stakeholders.

The results are anticipated to help us and our partners develop KT training and resources in BC of greatest value to producers and users of health research evidence.

We look forward to sharing the preliminary results of the survey on our website by the end of April. A more comprehensive report will be made available for discussion with our partner organizations by early summer.

If you have any questions about the KT Needs Assessment Survey, please contact Gayle Scarrow, Manager, Knowledge Translation at 604.714.6603, or gscarrow@msfhr.org.
