October 2015 Application Now Available!
KTPC is a five-day professional development initiative for knowledge translation (KT) professionals (i.e. knowledge brokers, KT specialists, KT managers, and the like). Participation in this week-long intensive requires some background in KT. The curriculum focuses on the core competencies of KT work in Canada, as identified by a survey of KT practitioners. These competencies include KT Planning, KT Theories and Frameworks, Implementation and Evaluation, among others. The course includes a balance of theory and practical application and we invite active participation by employers/mentors to help build organizational culture for KT.
- KTPC is fully accredited by the Continuing Professional Development Office at The University of Toronto’s faculty of Medicine. Successful completion of the source awards participants a Certificate of Completion from the University of Toronto and The Hospital for Sick Children.
- KTPC is recognized by Accreditation Canada as a Leading Practice.
- Each session of KTPC is rigorously evaluated to ensure learner success and tangible learning outcomes. Participants come away with a comprehensive KT Plan relevant to their work.
- KTPC includes 40 hours of contact time, including instruction, active learning, coaching and consultation, with nine expert faculty.
