Video series highlights knowledge translation success stories

14 November 2011

MSFHR is pleased to present a new knowledge translation (KT) video series highlighting the work of four exceptional scientists who have successfully integrated research findings into practice.

The four-part series, developed for use in the University of Toronto’s Knowledge Translation Professional Certificate course, is produced by Toronto’s SickKids Hospital with financial support from MSFHR and the Alberta Centre for Child, Family, and Community Research. The videos have also been presented in KT training seminars in British Columbia, including the recent Scientist Knowledge Translation Training (SKTT) workshop co-sponsored by MSFHR, Fraser Health, and Simon Fraser University.

Supporting the development of KT resources such as these videos is an important part of our ongoing mandate to build KT capacity for the BC health research community.

We will be releasing one new video each Monday and Thursday for the next two weeks. Check our YouTube page or follow us on Twitter for updates.
