Accelerating Australia is excited to announce that we are providing a limited number of scholarships for anyone affiliated with our consortium members (conditions apply, see all of our consortium members here) to attend the Scientist Knowledge Translation Training Program in Sydney this August!
If you are based in WA, the program will be run at The University Club, UWA, in September sponsored by the Western Australian Health Translation Network (WAHTN).
In late 2016, Knowledge Translation Australia Pty Ltd, formalised a partnership with The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto Canada. This unique partnership means that their highly sought after two-day Scientist Knowledge Translation Training (SKTT) program is now being run in Australia and New Zealand. Given the increasing move towards knowledge translation (KT) and impact by Australian funders, it is timely to have a comprehensive offering for Australian Scientists to undertake here at home.
The SKTT course is intended for anyone who has an interest in:
- Sharing research knowledge with varied knowledge user audiences beyond the traditional academic community
- Increasing the impact potential of their research
- Applying KT principles for sharing knowledge
The course is appropriate for scientists (basic, clinical, health services, population health) as well as educators, clinicians and KT professionals (e.g., KT Specialist, KT Manager, Knowledge Broker). SKTT is intended to build practical knowledge and skills, and prominent KT theories and models are also introduced.
