Knowledge Translation

Synthesizing research. Disseminating information. Exchanging knowledge.

Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative 2017 – 2020

The 2017 – 2020 Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative (KTinPC) will focus on the development of clinical tools and resources for Ontario’s primary care providers, and explore opportunities to better support primary care providers with EMR optimization and the localization of tools, where possible.
See below for the previous KTinPC Initiative.

The goals of the Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative include:

Provider Engagement

CEP Knowledge Translation Process

Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative 2014 – 2017

The 2014 – 2017 Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative aimed at developing and disseminating health information and clinical tools to support primary care providers.

The Centre for Effective Practice (CEP) partnered with the Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP) and the Nurse Practitioners’ Association of Ontario (NPAO) on the Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative. This multi-year initiative was funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

PRIMARY CARE NEEDS ASSESSMENT

The Centre for Effective Practice launched a Needs Assessment Survey in the Fall of 2014.  The purpose of this survey was to engage primary care providers (specifically family physicians and primary care nurse practitioners) to determine topics of interest, how best meet their information needs and communication preferences.  The results of this survey will help inform the development of clinical tools that are effective and relevant for primary care providers.

TOPIC SELECTION PROCESS

To identify clinical areas for this Initiative, a topic selection process was established. This process consisted of a number of key steps and inputs as outlined including the nomination of potential clinical topics by key stakeholders or primary care providers.
