You are invited to KT Connects, a monthly series of beginner-level training webinars for researchers and trainees to learn how to integrate knowledge translation in their work. KT is the crucial process in which knowledge is put into action to improve health, health services and health care systems.

Co-hosted by the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research and Arthritis Research Canada, these expert led webinars provide opportunities to build knowledge and skills in the following areas:

  • KT in Healthcare: Basic Concepts and Practice
  • KT Related to Patients and the Public
  • KT in Health Related Policy-Making
  • KT in Clinical Practice

The next webinar “Patients’ Experience of Engaging in Health Research: Partners in the Dance” features Sheila Kerr & Kelly English, Arthritis Patient Advisory Board, Arthritis Research Canada on Friday, March 31, 2017 from 12:00-13:00 PST.

Join us to learn about the experiences of the Arthritis Patient Advisory Board (APAB) members of Arthritis Research Canada. some of whom have been partnering with researchers since 2001. You will hear how APAB recruits patient members and creates strategic goals in an environment of inclusion and respect. You will also hear about the various roles that patient volunteers have undertaken using real world examples. If you are new to partnering with patients, this webinar can support you in creating “choreography” for effective dance partners – from the dance of the bumble bee to the waltz.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the development and the roles of a patient advisory board within a health organization
  • Discuss opportunities and challenges in partnering with patients in a research priority setting, data collection, and KT
  • Illustrate the process of peer-to-peer mentoring for patient partners in health research

I was thrilled to discover the Patient Voices Network, where the array of places to be the voice of a patient is vast and incredibly interesting. Besides my ongoing “gig” with the BC Emergency Medicine Network, I have enjoyed being involved in several one-off initiatives. I love working with professionals who genuinely value the perspectives of their patient partners.
