Join us for another exciting KT Connects with Dr. Emily Rempel as she explores and shares lessons from the COVID-19 infodemic to create more effective knowledge translation response in times of crisis.
Dr. Emily Rempel is a Red River Métis and White critical social researcher and a Knowledge Translation Lead at the BC Centre for Disease Control. Her work focuses on equity, public engagement and knowledge exchange in the fields of public health, critical data studies and biostatistics.
What will be discussed?
The COVID-19 “infodemic” has demonstrated the shared value of scientific research and evidence for both policy and public. It has also shown the risks when knowledge is poorly understood, contextualized and applied. In this session, Dr. Emily Rempel will share her experiences working in knowledge translation, public engagement and misinformation for COVID-19 at the BC Centre for Disease Control. She will contrast theories, definitions and practices of knowledge translation and public engagement in public health.
After this webinar, the audience will be able to:
- Explore the spectrum of activities involved in knowledge translation in the public health context.
- Define and contrast knowledge translation and public engagement from a theoretical basis.
- Examine and evaluate applied examples of knowledge translation and public engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Join us us on Friday, July 23 at 12 p.m. (PT) for this 45 minute webinar!
