Date: Wednesday, October 9, 2019
Time: 12:00 - 13:00 ET
Speaker: Travis Sztainert, PhD
This webinar will examine how practitioners (and other knowledge-users) can find and use the evidence they need. We’ll examine the current evidence landscape, and discuss how to navigate it. We’ll look at how to find different forms of evidence and appropriately appraise the evidence for quality and use. We’ll look at how practitioners can work with researchers to ensure mutually beneficial relationships. Finally, we’ll examine how practitioners can be evidence-creators themselves.
Target group: Practitioners or those who want to make evidence-informed decisions.
- Explore current barriers to finding and using evidence
- Identify relevant ways to assess evidence for quality and use
Describe how evidence-users and creators can work together for mutual benefit
