KT Connects: Knowledge translation webinar series

The Michael Smith Foundation of Health Research and Arthritis Research Canada have partnered to co-develop and host a series of monthly expert-led, beginner-level KT training webinars with the goal of developing a sustainable resource for researchers and trainees to learn knowledge and skills that will enable them to develop KT practice in their work.

Title: How does a Knowledge Broker 'fit' in the world of KT?

Speaker: Alison Hoens

This webinar will address 3 objectives:

  1. To provide a perspective on the 'fit' of knowledge brokering in knowledge translation based on the literature and 'lived experience'
  2. To share a new model for knowledge brokering in health care & elicit feedback on the model
  3. To gauge interest in a KB training program for BC
