The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research and Arthritis Research Canada have partnered to co-develop and host a series of monthly expert-led, beginner-level Knowledge Translation (KT) training webinars with the goal of developing a sustainable resource for research producers to learn knowledge and skills that will enable them to develop KT practice in their work. The next Webinar is:
Arts-based approaches to KT in health policy development
Susan M. Cox, Ph.D Associate Professor
Acting Director, The W. Maurice Young Centre for Applied Ethics
School of Population and Public Health
The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC
Friday, 7 July 2017
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PDT (note Pacific Daylight Time)
In this webinar, participants will be introduced to the range of literary, performative and visual methods used in arts-based approaches to KT. Specific challenges and opportunities related to using these innovative KT approaches in the field of health policy development will be considered through closer examination of a series of examples drawn from my own as well as colleagues’ work. The webinar will conclude with reflections on ethical and methodological issues arising and tips on where to turn for resources and support.
