KT training workshops
The MSFHR KT team offers training to help researchers, research teams and research users to increase the impact of health research evidence. Workshop participants learn foundational and advanced skills in knowledge translation and implementation practice.
The KT team currently offers two workshops:
- KT basics: For those new to knowledge translation, this workshop is provides an overview of the key concepts: what is KT, why is KT important and how to embed KT into practice.
- Getting started with implementation: This workshop is designed for health care teams with some experience in KT and evidence ready to put into practice or policy. Using a hands on approach, teams are guided through the process of assessing context readiness, developing a theoretically informed change strategy, forming implementation teams and setting up an evaluation.
