What does it mean to implement evidence?

Why is it important?

How do you do it?

This interactive workshop will explore all these questions and more. Join Larry Funnell, Patient Partner on successful implementation projects, and Lupin Battersby, Knowledge Translation Specialist, as they introduce you to the world of implementation science, knowledge translation and patient-oriented research with real and relevant examples.

From a wealth of experience with knowledge translation initiatives, Lupin will provide a brief introduction to key concepts for supporting the implementation of evidence, followed by a presentation on the implementation of an evidence-based Fracture Liaison Service at Peace Arch Hospital by Larry, who is the patient partner on the team – an inspiring example of patient-oriented knowledge translation.

The workshop will end with activities and discussion to jump-start your next implementation project.
