Title:
Integrating KT in Analytical and Interpretive Research Processes: Some theoretical and practical approaches

Webinar Description:
Integrating knowledge translation (KT) across the research process invites research teams to consider participatory approaches in all phases of inquiry. Though there is a strong body of literature and increasingly common practice of doing so in phases of study development, data gathering, and end-of-project activities, participatory strategies for analysis and interpretation remain relatively vague. In this seminar, we will highlight some of the theoretical and practical challenges of participatory analysis and interpretation before introducing a model for supporting the integration of KT in these phases of research. Practical strategies and methods will be discussed, including the ways in which data, the role of the researcher, and the consideration of research timelines shift when adopting this kind of approach. Doing so promotes inclusivity and long-term in one of the most critical phases of research, creating potential for usefulness, meaningfulness, and applicability of research findings in systems settings.

Bio:
Katrina Plamondon is a Registered Nurse with a clinical practice background in critical care/emergency, public health, and street outreach. She completed a Master of Science in Community Health & Epidemiology at the University of Saskatchewan under a CIHR‐funded Strategic Training Fellowship in community and population health. Her practice and educational experiences carried her into an academic setting in 2008, first as Assistant Professor at Mount Royal University’s School of Nursing then to practice support, currently serving as practice leader for research and knowledge translation for Interior Health. An experienced facilitator and systems-thinker, she strives to foster health system strengthening by enabling people across the system to use and do more research as part of their everyday practice. She has been actively involved with the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research since 2004 and currently co-leads the Policy Influence Program. In this role, she provides leadership and facilitation for advanced knowledge translation training and, since 2012, has served as the principal investigator for a multi-phased national study on issues of governance in global health research. In September 2013, she began a doctoral program in interdisciplinary studies at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. A Banting & Best Canada Graduate Scholar, her doctoral studies focus on researchers’ experiences and practices for doing research-for-equity.

Title:
How to Win Friends and Influence Health Planning: Lessons from the Edges of Collaborative Health Services Research

Summary:
Influencing health services policy through research is a challenge that has besotted researchers – and funders and policy-makers – despite the growing attention to the necessity of this dynamic exchange. Often timelines, misalignment of research and planning priorities and skepticism mar even the best intentions of both constituencies. One thing that is common to the emerging understanding of effective research-to-action noted in the literature is recognition of the importance of relationships. The Applied Policy Research Unit is part of the Centre for Rural Health Research that is dedicated to moving primary research on rural health services into policy and decision-making. It is built on relationship-based processes with all key stakeholders (integrated knowledge translation) with the objective of demonstrating the relevance of researchers – and the university –  to policy makers. The unit provides rapid reviews commissioned by decision makers who are in a position to change health care policy and overviews of the implications of position statements for rural communities. We developed the proto-type to be ‘mainstreamed’ into other health service research settings, viewing it as a necessary part of the research process. Three years in, this ‘proof of concept’ unit has achieved some successes and can provide some cautionary tales to others embarking on applied policy research.

Bio:
Jude Kornelsen, PhD, is a health services researcher with an interest in sustainable rural health, maternity care, rural health planning and community and policy engagement. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Family Practice, UBC, Co-Director of the Centre for Rural Health Research and Director of the Applied Policy Research Unit, an initiative based on bridging the research – policy gap by understanding and meeting the needs and contextual realities of decision-makers and health planners. She has both led and contributed to foundational work documenting the impacts of maternity service closures on rural women, families and communities from a psycho-social and health outcomes perspective. Current research foci include rural health services performance measurement to identify innovation in rural practice and the development of a framework to facilitate ‘scaling up’ of innovative practices.

Dr. Kornelsen is a past Canadian Institutes of Health Research New Investigator and Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar. She is currently an adjunct Associate Professor, Sydney Medical School (Australia).
