Mastering Research Translation

What on earth is Knowledge Translation (KT)?

KT is a complex and confusing topic, made even more so by the multitude of terms used to describe it. It is often argued that not only do the different terms have different meanings but that KT means different things to different people, ranging from communication to linkage and exchange.

KT is sometimes confused with or thought of as dissemination, communication, commercialisation, technology transfer, or continuing medical education. However, it is important to conceptualise what is meant by the term knowledge translation as a system rather than to continue debate on terminology and differences in meaning.

This workshop helps you to master research translation. We provide a background on knowledge translation and how all the components come together in one system that results in a pathway to research impact.

If you want greater reach, bigger outcomes, and better impact from your research then you need to master your translation processes.

Workshop audience:

This workshop is for researchers and research support staff that want to build their understanding and mastery of the fundamentals of research translation.

Workshop objectives:

  • Learn how to get the right information, to the right people, at the right time, in a way they can use.
  • Understand the terminology, definitions, and the history of knowledge translation.
  • See knowledge translation as a system that encompasses all the steps between the creation of knowledge to the outcomes and delivery of knowledge.
  • Learn about the models and frameworks for translation.
  • Enhance your chances of KT success and research impact through step by step development of a KT strategy.
  • View an example plan. See how translation elements can be embedded in your current project, or the planning of a new project or grant proposal.

Implementation

During the workshop participants will work on relevant elements for their own projects. Participants will leave with ideas and a plan of next steps to be undertaken. 

Workbook

Handouts, activity sheets and information. Participants will have a valuable resource to refer back to as they implement their new knowledge.

Coaching

All workshops include a follow-up coaching session with each participant to cover any questions and concerns and to facilitate the implementation process.

Action plan

Participants will use action items developed during the workshop to develop a purposeful and strategic plan. We make sure that time out for this workshop is not wasted but instead leveraged.
