Webinar: Moving Knowledge into Action through SHKN Communities of Practice
Funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, a three-year research project looked at nine different knowledge translation initiatives carried out by Ontario Communities of Practice (CoPs). Several of the initiatives studied were led by CoPs within the Seniors Health Knowledge Network (SHKN).
This presentation will focus on the facilitators of and barriers to knowledge translation and exchange encountered by these CoPs, including contextual factors and the roles played by initiative participants.
The principle investigator of this project, James Conkin, will share the major findings, and will describe the two major ways in which these CoPs attempted to move knowledge into action. The presentation will also touch on the way that these CoPs functioned as a temporary social context in which problems could be framed and tested, and on the need for these CoPs to design and implement interventions aimed at different levels in the health system. The presentation will include a panel discussion of the results and a Q&A session.
