We want to update you on the progress of the knowledge translation, dissemination, and impact project. In this newsletter we will share information about:
Explainer Video and Training
An explainer video has been completed. It is just 5 minutes long and explains how important knowledge translation is for sharing research and making an impact and how doing so bridges the gap between research and practice and policy, It can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWN5MFqd6dUqkwdZC9BDonQ and is also available in HSELand.
The 6 training modules are available on HSELand and can be taken separately or as a whole. Non-HSE students or others can access them by registering as a student on the site. The modules are:
To access the training, log into HSELanD (www.hseland.ie) and Select Course Catalogues, then select any of the catalogues: ‘Clinical Skills’, ‘Profession or Unit’, ‘Personal Effectiveness’, or ‘Quality, Leadership & Management’. Then Select the "Research and Development" catalogue. Alternatively, enter ‘knowledge translation’ into the search bar.
Guidance, Information and Resources
There are many reasons for sharing research findings. They can:
A series of guides are available on the HSE Research and Development website: https://hseresearch.ie
The guides are aimed at supporting researchers and those with an interest in knowledge translation, dissemination, and making an impact with their research, to find, create, share, and use research knowledge.
The guides cover all aspects of dissemination and knowledge translation:
We have also produced a series of tools and templates.
The Patient and Public Involvement Reference Group
The project co-leads have been meeting with members of the PPI Reference Group through 2021. The group wanted to work on three areas of knowledge translation, dissemination, and impact. These are:
So far, the group have produced a guide to communicating research and a guide to patient and public involvement in research.
