The Practicing Knowledge Translation (PKT) course is a professional development course on how to apply KT science to real-world implementation projects to enhance and sustain project outcomes. The course focuses on empowering individuals and organizations in the health system with the knowledge, skills and support to effectively do KT by learning how to:  

  • Map barriers and facilitators to change using theories and frameworks
  • Systematically select and operationalize implementation strategies to address barriers and facilitators
  • Plan for implementation, evaluation, and sustainability
2024 Schedule:

April 15 – 18, 2024, 10:00am-12:00pm and 1:00-3:00pm Eastern time (4 hours/day)

  • We encourage individuals in any health-related discipline who are responsible for implementing change in any health care system/context/organization to apply.
  • PKT is particularly beneficial when participants have an implementation project they are working on directly or indirectly.
  • Implementation projects can be broadly defined or at any stage of development. Examples of previous projects applied during PKT include: preventing urinary tract infections in long-term care homes, improving how researchers engage patients in patient-oriented research, increasing hospital mobilization rates, implementing a data-tracking and monitoring system to reduce perinatal mortality in Ethiopia, increasing primary care guideline adherence, and changing organizational email practices.
