The purpose of the National Collaborating Centres for Public Health (NCCPH) Knowledge Translation Graduate Student Awards is to recognize the work of graduate students regarding knowledge translation in public health in Canada. Defined by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, knowledge translation is a dynamic and iterative process that includes synthesis, dissemination, exchange and ethically-sound application of knowledge to improve the health of Canadians, provide more effective health services and products and strengthen the health care system.
Three awards were given at Public Health 2018, this year's annual Canadian Public Health Association conference.
The NCCPH Knowledge Translation Graduate Student Awards Webinar will feature the work of the winners. Each student will present their topic and engage with the audience in a question and answer period.
The webinar will take place on November 8, 2018 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. (EST) - Register for the 2019 KT Graduate Student Awards Webinar
This event will be presented in English. An audio recording will be available following the event. The presentation slides will be posted online in English and French following the event.
