Description:

We will present on work we have been involved in with a National Center of Excellence in Knowledge Mobilization called Translating Emergency Knowledge for Kids (TREKK). TREKK addresses an identified gap between “what we know and what we do” in the context of pediatric emergency care, particularly in the context of general emergency departments. The vision of TREKK is that every child receives the highest standard of care, whether they are treated in a pediatric or general emergency department. We will give an overview of the goals and purpose of TREKK; discuss the results of a national needs assessment we conducted to identify information needs and priorities; and, present strategies we developed to mobilize knowledge to healthcare providers and parents, including use of knowledge pyramids, social media, and electronic tools. We will close with reflections on our experience to date including factors that have helped us achieve our goals.


Proudly presented by the Alberta SPOR KT Platform

Dr. Shannon Scott is a Professor in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta. She currently holds a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair for knowledge translation in child health and an Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) Population Health Investigator award. Her research program, Translating Evidence in Child Health to enhance Outcomes (or ECHO), aims to improve the health outcomes of children in Alberta and Canada through application of the best research evidence, as well as exploring factors that shape research implementation. Her research is in the field of knowledge translation (KT) — a field focused on decreasing the gap between what the best available evidence advises that clinicians do and what clinicians actually do in clinical practice. She is also one of the co-Directors of Translating Emergency Knowledge for Kids, a National Center of Excellence in Knowledge Mobilization.
