Translation is a key impact measure used for research. For many clinicians involved in emergency medicine research, ‘knowledge translation’  — or making sure people know about and understand your research outcomes — is the most effective pathway for ensuring their research has impact and is adopted clinically. EMF is running a half-day workshop to up-skill emergency medicine clinicians in knowledge translation and, importantly, give you the opportunity to develop a plan specifically tailored to your research.

Led by Dr Tamika Heiden (pictured below), this three hour interactive workshop will help transform and maximise your research impact. Tamika is an experienced and engaging knowledge translation expert, who will walk you through all the elements involved in building your own tailored knowledge translation plan and the ultimate pathway to impact.

Tamika uses planning techniques and a template to determine your project vision and goals. Through this process, you will determine the stakeholders that need to be involved, when to involve them and the level of involvement required.

This facilitated session is designed for you to bring your current research ideas or projects, or a new idea and project and to work on your plan.

What’s in it for you?

  • Understand the system of knowledge translation and the pathway to impact.
  • Learn how to identify, communicate and grow your network of stakeholders
  • Know how to articulate your translation and impact goals within your grant applications
  • Embed translation elements in your current project or the planning of a new project or grant proposal.
  • Develop and plan engagement and dissemination activities, and articulate your intended project impacts.
  • Completion of this workshop will allow participants to work through a knowledge translation template that then can be used within grant applications and research proposals.

Who should attend?

  • Queensland health clinicians planning to submit an EMF grant application in 2018
  • Queensland health doctors, nurses, paramedics and allied health professionals engaging in emergency medicine research
