Making Science Stick: Developing the KT Plan

February 23, 2011, 2:00 PM (Central) / 3:00 PM (Eastern)

About the Workshop/Webcast

A well-developed knowledge translation (KT) plan is emerging as a proposal requirement for health research funding in North America and abroad, and there is greater attention to research utilization and research impact in many aspects of disability and rehabilitation research. Dr. Melanie Barwick will discuss developing a KT plan as a part of a research proposal, or at the beginning of project planning, in order to increase the impact and reach of research findings to a variety of audiences. She will review the state of the scientific evidence for KT strategies and introduce the KT Planning Template™ (Barwick 2008), a tool that can assist with the planning process.
