The NSHRF’s REAL Knowledge Program has sponsored three participants to attend the Knowledge Translation (KT) Canada Summer Institute. Held in Quebec City from June 9-11, 2014, the purpose of this SI is to provide participants with the opportunity to increase their understanding of knowledge translation research as well as opportunities and challenges in this field. The SI will provide participants with the chance to network with colleagues including national and international KT experts. The theme of the 2014 SI is “Knowledge Translation for 4 Ps (patients, providers, public and policymakers).

We caught up with the three successful participants to learn more about what they want to achieve at the KT Summer Institute. To read more, click here.
