HPER71-112: Knowledge Translation in Healthcare

Description

In this subject, you will be guided to select and review a healthcare practice and critically appraise research evidence to identify a knowledge practice gap. You will specify an improvement aim and identify key stakeholders who are likely to be impacted. You will explore change and implementation science theories and be supported to apply these theories to your chosen context to accelerate the translation of evidence and improve health outcomes. You will develop core skills in identifying implementation strategies, summarising the project into a logic model, and developing an implementation plan to address a knowledge practice gap in the workplace.
