Information: The HBCRG has recently received funding for a project called ‘INTeRACT for Health: Increasing Integrated Knowledge Translation Capacity for Impact’. The aim of the project is to enhance knowledge translation capacity nationally, and to develop capacity and skill to impact on outcomes of importance. A one day workshop on integrated Knowledge Translation and Implementation will be organised to involve members of the HBCRG, health partners from the Health and Wellbeing Division and the National Diabetes Clinical Programme and other interested Irish stakeholders. The event will be facilitated by Prof Maureen Dobbins, an experienced knowledge translation ‘broker’ and nursing professor from McMaster in Canada. For the event, Maureen will provide an introduction to the theme of knowledge translation, followed by presentations describing successful examples of knowledge translation from national and international speakers, leaving time for group discussion.
