VCCC Knowledge translation workshop: Maximise your clinical research impact

Do you want your research to change the cancer landscape - influence decision-makers and attract further funding? Do you want to reach out to patients affected by your work? Achieving these impacts requires a plan for delivering the right information, to the right people, at the right time, and in a format that they can use. This one-day intensive workshop offers practical tools to help you embed a plan for impact across all stages of your research, using a knowledge transfer framework approach. Influence and engage with peers, policy-makers, consumers, funding bodies and others. 

This one-day intensive, practical workshop, will equip participants with:

  • Practical knowledge transfer frameworks, enabling researchers to apply them to research projects
  • Skills to support researchers’ efforts to develop effective relationships with research end-users and decision-makers
  • Skills and strategies for effectively communicating research to a range of audiences and end-users

Facilitators:

Dr Rebecca Armstrong, Executive Manager, Knowledge Translation and Impact, Australian Institute for Family Studies and guest lecturer within the Master of Clinical Research, The University of Melbourne.

Dr Kirsty Jones, Research Fellow, ANU College of Asia and the Pacific.
