Questions



Education and Training in Knowledge Translation Links

  • Environmental scan to identify current best practices in KT&E training in academic settings

  • Standardized curricula and training programs in KT&E

  • Training opportunities for researchers that will cross themes, disciplines and levels of expertise

  • Pilot research projects related to training in KT&E

  • Funding opportunities for students to develop KT strategies


Canadian Dementia Resource and Knowledge Exchange (CDRAKE) Links

  • Development of a national KE network – Canadian Dementia Resource and Knowledge Exchange (CDRAKE)

  • Environmental scan of existing KE networks, best practices, strategies

  • KT&E conferences / workshops

  • Research and KT&E partnerships between all key stakeholders

  • Pilot research projects related to KE

  • Electronic repository of information, resources, innovations


Patient/Caregiver Centred Knowledge Translation Links

  • Identification of research priorities based on the needs of persons with dementia and their care partners

  • New person-centred and relationship based models and approaches for KT

  • Clinically and socially relevant and person-centred KT research projects

  • A database for researchers of the experience of dementia from perspectives of those living with dementia


How CDKTN connects KT research to users Links

Diffusion

Dissemination

Implementation (Application)

Lomas J Ann NY Acad Sci. 1993, 703:226-37


1. Diffusion Links

Let it happen ~ Passive information sharing

Examples: Publishing a paper in an academic journal, going to a conference with a poster or posting information on a website.



Diffusion ~ CDKTN Links www.lifeandminds.ca


CDKTN’s Research Members Intranet Links

http://intranet.cdktn.ca



2. Dissemination Links

  • You target and tailor what you are communicating to the specific audience you are trying to reach.

  • Help it happen ~ This approach can be more or less active

  • Less active: You have completed research and you translate the results into brochures, videos etc. for the public.

  • More active: tailoring a small workshop to disseminate results, get feedback etc.


Dissemination ~ Links

Dementia Knowledge Broker

A platform to find and share knowledge and resources, in order to help those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

http://www.dementiaknowledgebroker.ca


3. Implementation Links

Make it happen ~ engages knowledge users

The most active of all three, implementation “…involves systematic efforts to encourage adoption of the research findings by overcoming barriers to their use.”

Gagnon, ML. J of Clin Epi 64 (2011) 25-31


Implementation ~ Links

CDKTN Research and Education RFAs

Since November 2008, CDKTN has had 5 major funding competitions, all funded in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada. The competition encourages researchers to include knowledge translation activities in their projects. The outcomes of this research are made available for immediate use.


Implementation ~ Links

  • Development, Evaluation and Dissemination of a Bilingual Workshop for Dementia Care Providers Entitled: “Frailty, Dementia and Disasters: What Health Care Providers Need to Know” – Maggie Gibson, PhD


When Dementia is in the House – Tiffany Chow, PhD Links

When Dementia is in the Housewas developed to educate caregiving for children living with someone who has dementia, with a focus on frontotemporal dementia (FTD). 


In closing Links

“There remains much to be learned about how we can increase the application of research knowledge, whether it's the commercialization of scientific discoveries or changes to current health care practices and policies.

However, what is certain is that as a society we will not reap the full benefits of our investments in health research unless the resulting discoveries are acted upon by other researchers, policy-makers, health care providers, patients, the public, and by the private, voluntary, and public health sectors.”
