The call for abstracts is now open for the fifth Fuse International Conference on Knowledge Exchange in Public Health, which will be held in Newcastle, UK, September 22-23, 2020. The deadline for abstract submissions is February 28, 2020.
Theme: Learning from setbacks and successes
Potential questions that contributions could address are: Where and how do setbacks occur in knowledge exchange? Who notices them and what is the impact of producers, users and exchangers of knowledge? How to respond to setbacks and challenges; how can we prepare for them and learn from mistakes? What is needed to create a ‘permission to fail’ culture in evidence producing, using and sharing organisations?
We invite paper submissions from academics, policy makers and practitioners on:
Sharing practical examples of knowledge exchange challenges and how these challenges were dealt with
Methodological and theoretical developments in documenting and reflecting on knowledge exchange challenges
Critical commentaries on the scientific, practice and policy landscapes that shape and influence knowledge exchange challenges.
MSFHR is offering to provide travel funding and registration fees for up to three (3) BC-based research trainees whose abstracts are accepted for the fifth Fuse Conference. Funding will be based on a first-come, first-served basis with proof of abstract acceptance via an email to Gayle Scarrow, Director, Knowledge Translation at MSFHR, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
