Knowledge Translation

Course Code: BHSW 4503

Academic Year: 2020-2021

This course has two parts; an on-line portion focusing on communicating health surveillance data effectively and ethically to trigger appropriate action and impact. The face-to-face portion provides a broad overview of knowledge translation (KT) with exposure to various current and emerging KT theories, methods and tools. Research evidence is translated and transferred to highly effective prevention practices. Students demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the knowledge-to-action cycle, KT planning, knowledge exchange translation, and interventions. The research content is dependent upon the area of research chosen for the Capstone Project 2. Students extend and apply their knowledge and skills from previous courses and correlate KT with research in concurrent courses. Students prepare an oral presentation to showcase the summation of their learning, understanding, and applicability of KT to their area of research.
