Practicing Knowledge Translation (PKT): Implementing evidence. Achieving outcomes MELISSA

Are you interested in learning how to implement practices using comprehensive methods and the best available evidence?

The KT Program in the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute at St. Michael’s Hospital offers the Practicing Knowledge Translation (PKT): Implementing evidence. Achieving outcomes course, which is an intensive course in knowledge translation (KT) that focuses on teaching best practices in high-quality implementation. It offers in-depth instruction on methods of encouraging practice changes to achieve desired outcomes by using evidence-based implementation strategies.

The course is specifically designed to address practical applications of KT; participants directly apply implementation evidence and theories to their own projects throughout the duration of the course, and receive support from course instructors to help strengthen the design and operationalization of their work using KT methods. The PKT course equips participants with the core competencies required to effectively integrate evidence-informed practices into their own projects
