The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) launched the Knowledge Broker (KB) Mentoring Program in 2014 to advance the uptake and use of evidence-informed decision making (EIDM) in Canada within the public health sector. It combines in-person and online support to train public health practitioners to develop knowledge and capacity in the theory and practice of EIDM.
The field of public health is continuously evolving. The KB Mentoring Program helps public health professionals develop the knowledge and skills they need to integrate the best available evidence into practice: evidence-informed decision making. EIDM not only results in increased transparency and accountability, it also provides a basis for informed decision making, particularly during times of uncertainty and fiscal restraint.
The third cohort of the KB Mentoring program, which is 21 months in length, will begin in the fall of 2019, with an organizational assessment, followed by a four day face-to-face workshop in Hamilton, Ontario in February 2020.
Groups of 4-6 individuals from Canadian public health organizations are invited to register for this program.
