Accepting Applications: Knowledge Translation Professional Certificate (KTPC) – March 2024


What is KTPC and who is it for?

KTPC is an online, seven-day professional development course for knowledge translation (KT) professionals (ie. knowledge brokers, KT specialists, KT managers, and other professionals whose work has a significant KT focus). Participation in this 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 balances theory and practical application, and we invite active participation by employers/mentors to help build an organizational culture that supports KT.

Developed by the Learning Institute at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, KTPC is hosted three times a year (March, June, October). Each session is open to a limited number of participants.
