HPER71-112: Knowledge Translation in Healthcare

Description

In this subject 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 knowledge practice gaps, assessing barriers and facilitators to change, 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.
