Public Lecture: Introduction to Knowledge Translation

Introduction to Knowledge Translation

Health researchers, as with all researchers, have 3 basic obligations:

1. Ask important and timely questions that have the potential to be answerable.

2. Conduct high quality and appropriate research to address these questions.

3. Work to implement (harness) the results of the research.

The 3rd task--Knowledge Translation (KT) is the hardest to achieve.

Ms. McKibbon will share several approaches to KT that can help us understand and plan our "behaviour change" interventions--and to search for this kind of material across disciplines and countries. We will look at some theories of KT and practical tools for us to use in our own library research and also for the students, staff, and faculty we support.

This event is open to the public and free. 

Time: Nov. 02, 2018, 10:00am-11:30am. 

Location: Health Sciences Library Computer Classroom
