KT Connects webinar - Knowledge translation and behaviour change science: Building community in a pre- and post-pandemic world

KT Connects is series of monthly beginner-level knowledge translation (KT) webinars hosted by MSHFR and Arthritis Research Canada. Hear KT scientists, stakeholders and practitioners discuss the basics of KT, how KT relates to patients and the public, and KT in health policy-making and clinical practice.

During these difficult times, physical distancing measures have many of us longing for social connectedness. Dr. Jasmin Ma will discuss how knowledge translation and behaviour change science can help shape community within and beyond the research context. She will discuss the interplay between knowledge translation and behaviour change science, share specific examples of knowledge translation and behaviour change science projects, and discuss how this partnered and systematic approach not only sets the stage for more relevant research but is an important part of building community in a pre- and post-pandemic world.

Learning objectives:

  • Define integrated knowledge translation and behaviour change science
  • Identify examples of building community to conduct knowledge translation and behaviour change science work
  • Discuss the broader implications of knowledge translation and behaviour change science for researchers, patients, and healthcare providers in the context of COVID-19 and beyond

Dr. Jasmin Ma is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Knowledge Translation at Arthritis Research Canada and UBC with Dr. Linda Li. Funded by CIHR, the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, and the Arthritis Society, Jasmin is focused on supporting strength training behaviour change and developing methods for tailored physical activity interventions among people with chronic disease and disability. Leveraging her experience as a kinesiologist and ACSM inclusive fitness trainer, she works to bridge healthcare and community to provide physical activity participation opportunities for people with disabilities.
