Specialist Knowledge Translation Training (offered by SickKids)
A well-developed knowledge translation (KT) plan is often a proposal requirement for health research funding agencies in Canada and abroad. In addition, various sectors are demonstrating greater attention to the utilization and impact of research. The Specialist Knowledge Translation Training (SKTT™) workshop was developed on the premise that scientists, practitioners and educators are agents of change in creating research impact, promoting research utilization, and ensuring that research findings reach the appropriate audiences. This course was designed to teach the unique skillset that surrounds KT practice.
The SKTT™ course is intended for individuals in health, mental health, education, social sciences and other fields who have an interest in sharing research knowledge with (multiple) audiences beyond the traditional academic community, as appropriate, and in increasing the impact potential of research.
Initially developed to help SickKids’ Scientists develop their KT skills, the course is equally suited to KT professionals, practitioners, educators, and decision makers in community based organizations and government. The material is universally applicable across sectors, job roles, and geographic locations.
