KT Training & Events
There is increasing emphasis on the importance of applying research evidence in practice and policy-making. As a result, there is a growing need for researchers, health care providers, health administrators, and policy-makers to develop the skills and resources to effectively produce and use relevant health research evidence.
MSFHR supports knowledge translation training and resources in BC by working with local, provincial, and national academic and health system partners to offer a range of training opportunities and resources.

Skills training workshops
Since 2011, MSFHR has worked with health system and academic partners to offer knowledge translation training workshops. These workshops help BC researchers and research users build the core skills to maximize the use of health research evidence in practice.
More than 500 participants have been trained to date.
Note: A portion of workshops are partnered and as such are restricted to the staff and affiliates of those organizations. Other MSFHR workshops may be unrestricted and open to all interested individuals.
At the request of a range of stakeholders, we bring together researchers and research users to discuss important issues identified by research users.
