Knowledge Translation Professional Certificate (KTPC) offered by SickKids

WHAT IS KTPC AND WHO IS IT FOR? 

KTPC is an online seven-day professional development program for knowledge translation (KT) professionals (i.e., 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. 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.
