We are back with another exciting KT Connects webinar: Overcoming five anxieties in population health KT literature!
Join us on Friday, June 25 at 12 p.m. (PT) for this one hour webinar, as Dr. Paul Kershaw explores challenges and opportunities related to knowledge mobilization initiatives designed to influence the social determinants of health.
What will be discussed?
Dr. Paul Kershaw is a HELP faculty member, director of the UBC MPH Program, associate professor in the UBC School of Population and Public Health, and founder of Generation Squeeze — an award-winning, policy-influencing, massive open online KT initiative for social determinants of health research related to the generations raising young children.
During the session, Dr. Kershaw will introduce participants to five anxieties commonly found in literature about KT in population health. He will feature interdisciplinary insights about KT needed to enact change in complex systems that draw from thinking about power, thinking like a movement, and thinking like a marketer. Learnings from the sessions will draw on real world examples from the knowledge mobilization activities of Generation Squeeze and the Human Early Learning Partnership, which aim to create the optimal conditions for families raising young children and reduce inequalities in early child development in BC.
After this webinar, the audience will be able to:
- Describe the five anxieties of KT in population health literature.
- Clarify the importance of addressing values, power and motivation in KT.
- Apply these concepts to the challenges and successes of current knowledge mobilization activities in BC.
