A well-developed Knowledge Translation/Knowledge Exchange (KE) plan is emerging as a proposal requirement for research funding agencies worldwide. Research use and research impact are becoming increasingly important in getting recognition and funding for research, particularly with the new REF impact requirements, which will probably become enhanced in the future.

This training course is based on an extremely successful model developed in Canada. The material is relevant to individuals working in all sectors, particularly those with an interest in sharing research knowledge with audiences beyond the traditional academic community and increasing the impact potential of their research.

Melanie Barwick, Registered Psychologist and Health Systems Research Scientist, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto.

The course is intended for anyone who has an interest in:

  • Sharing research knowledge with (multiple) audiences beyond the traditional academic community
  • Increasing (and demonstrating) the impact potential of their research
  • Applying KE principles for sharing knowledge

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Define KE and related terms
  • Describe KE strategies and identify what might be useful for their research
  • Define how KE and Implementation complement each other
  • Describe key elements of successful implementation
  • Use the KT Planning Template ©  to develop a KE plan
  • Evaluate and demonstrate impact of their research KE initiatives
  • Improve engagement with partners

Learning Modules

  1. Toward an Understanding of Knowledge Translation is designed to increase participants’ general understanding of KE and how it relates to implementation of evidence.
  2. Developing a KT Plan covers the basic elements of KE planning, including evaluation for impact.
  3. Improving Engagement with Partners provides an overview of good practice in establishing and maintaining collaborations and partnerships with non-academics and policy makers.

Full course fee – £220
