Integrated Knowledge Translation and Consumer Engagement: A Primer for Rehabilitation Researchers and Clinicians
With Guest Speaker, John Chernesky, Lead of Consumer Engagement at Praxis Spinal Cord Institute (formerly the Rick Hansen Institute), Blusson Spinal Cord Centre and Executive Council Member of the North American Spinal Cord Injury Consortium
Rehabilitation researchers are increasingly encouraged to involve stakeholders in their efforts, to enhance the validity and usefulness of their work. Too often, however, stakeholders are involved at only a superficial level, providing little opportunity for them to truly influence the quality and relevance of the research in which they are involved. This presentation will enhance learners’ understanding of the concept and practical application of Integrated Knowledge Translation and Consumer Engagement. The work of the Praxis Spinal Cord Institute (formerly, Rick Hansen Institute)’s Consumer Program will be discussed, as well as the role and activities of the North American Spinal Cord Injury Consortium. Learners will also be connected with resources they can use for guidance when including people with lived experience of SCI in their work. While the focus of this presentation will be on SCI-related research, the principles described have broad applicability to other disability communities.
By the end of this presentation, learners will be able to… Define Integrated Knowledge Translation and Consumer Engagement Describe at least three ways in which consumer engagement enhances the quality and utility of research Identify at least two resources that provide guidance to researchers or other professionals who are interested in enhancing consumer engagement in their work
