These videos, originally part of the Cochrane Learning Live webinar series, are from the first in a series of Knowledge Translation (KT) “The view from here” webinars that share experiences, challenges and good practice from people across the Cochrane community about their KT activities.
This webinar looks at how to develop and evaluate a KT plan based on the advice and experiences from the Cochrane Child Health Field. Sarah Elliott and Gabrielle Zimmermann introduce Cochrane Child Health in the context of their previous KT activities, and discuss their creation of a KT plan based on the Field’s work to date and their future course.
Their plan was developed by mapping out a new direction using Cochrane’s KT framework. Sarah and Gabrielle present the detail of this exercise and include any challenges and considerations. They then consider how this type of KT plan could be evaluated and set up for success. Finally, they consider how this approach might be used by other Cochrane Groups and the possible challenges, considerations and opportunities.
This webinar was delivered in March 2019.
Below you will find videos from the webinar along with the accompanying slides to download [PDF].
Part 1: Context - Cochrane Child Health
Part 2: Construction – Implementing and evaluating a KT plan; how, why and for whom?
Part 3: Challenges and considerations – what did we learn?
Sarah Elliott, Ph.D.
Sarah Elliott is the Program Manager for Cochrane Child Health, based at the Alberta Research Centre for Health Evidence. She has over seven years' health research and project management experience in pediatric nutrition. Through her postgraduate studies and research fellowships she has been involved in numerous projects encompassing different aspects of pediatric clinical and public health research. An advocate for evidence based practice, she understands the need for (and translation of) high quality evidence to improve health practices in both pediatric clinical and community settings. Combining her expertise and interests she hopes to develop accessible tools to support the translation and uptake of evidence to clinicians and health policy makers.
Gabrielle Zimmermann, Ph.D.
