2 May 2018 - Research Impact: Maximising Knowledge Transfer and Exchange Workshop

Event Date: 


What: Research Impact: Maximising Knowledge Transfer and Exchange - A Workshop for palliative care practitioners and researchers

When: Wednesday 2 May 2018 9.30am - 4.00pm

Where: The Education, Innovation and Research Centre at Northern Ireland Hospice, 74 Somerton Road, Belfast

Achieving impact begins with knowledge transfer and exchange of research findings between key stakeholders. Developing a comprehensive dissemination strategy should be an integral part of every palliative care research project. This CPD accredited workshop will help you learn how to design and develop a dissemination plan from the outset of your research project using a peer reviewed Evidence-based Model for the Transfer and exchange of Research Knowledge (EMTReK).

CPD Approved: RCP UK (6 Credits), RCPI (5 Credits) and NMBI (5 CEUs).

Workshop details:
In this workshop the All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative care (AIIHPC) will take a close look at each component of the EMTReK model. They will provide real world examples of research projects that used the model to support the development of a dissemination plan and promote the successful transfer and exchange of research outcomes to identified stakeholders using a range of dissemination tools. You’ll learn how to apply the EMTReK model to a research project and how to evaluate dissemination plans to maintain and maximise effective knowledge transfer and exchange.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Recognise modern day challenges around research knowledge transfer and exchange
  • Identify research knowledge dissemination tools available (both traditional and non-traditional)
  • Understand a KTE model for palliative care research (EMTReK) and the importance of each component
  • Practiced application of the EMTReK model to a palliative care research project
  • Appreciate the importance of periodic dissemination plan evaluation
