HPER71-112: Knowledge Translation and Quality in Healthcare


In this subject you will develop an understanding of how the principles of quality improvement and implementation science complement each other within a broad knowledge translation framework to apply research evidence into clinical practice. You will be guided to identify an aspect of local practice which is not supported by research evidence; through reviewing quality improvement data and critically appraising current research evidence. You will be facilitated to identify a theory of change and apply the science of implementation in order to accelerate the translation of evidence and improve health outcomes. You will develop core skills in assessing and identifying research-practice gaps, assessing barriers and facilitators to change, classifying and applying behaviour change frameworks and synthesising the project into a logic model. You will develop a protocol to implement an evidence-informed intervention within your workplace.
