Despite increasing levels of research being gathered in health settings, there are several challenges to the implementation of evidence into practice, which is required to influence policy changes. A well thought out dissemination plan is critical for effective knowledge transfer and exchange of research outcomes from research to practice and policy contexts, but also to other researchers. EMTReK is a model that will help you design a knowledge transfer and exchange dissemination plan from the beginning of your research project.
In this workshop we will take a close look at each component of the EMTReK model. We will provide real world examples of research projects that used the model to support the development of a dissemination plan and promote the successful transfer and exchange of research outcomes to identified stakeholders using a range of dissemination tools. You’ll learn how to apply the EMTReK model to a research project and how to evaluate dissemination plans to maintain and maximise effective knowledge transfer and exchange.
- Recognise modern day challenges around research knowledge transfer and exchange
- Identify research knowledge dissemination tools available
- Understand each component of the EMTReK model
- Appreciate the importance of periodic dissemination plan evaluation
- Practiced application of the EMTReK model to a palliative care research project
