Event description


This webinar will be co-presented with the Saskatchewan Centre for Patient Oriented Research (SCPOR).


This webinar aims to provide an overview of current methods used in patient-oriented knowledge translation (KT) projects in Saskatchewan and Alberta. After an introduction to KT and patient-oriented research, the focus of the presentation will be on the methods used in patient-oriented KT research projects. The case studies presented will concentrate on the varying approaches used to engage patients. The scope of the projects presented includes cataloging the available literature by conducting systematic reviews and scoping reviews, developing and implementing clinical pathways, investigating interdisciplinary ward rounds, and evaluating the experience of patient-family advisor participation in quality improvement events and the development of knowledge translation tools for parents.

This presentation will prepare the participants for their journey on patient-oriented research endeavours. We hope the presentation will stimulate the interest of healthcare professionals, graduate students, and researchers to embark on patient-oriented research. The case studies will focus on patient-oriented projects and our experience with this type of research, including the challenges we have experience with this new approach.
