Conference Theme:
Tailoring Your Knowledge Translation Strategies for Your Intended Users

Conference Abstract:
Any knowledge translation (KT) approach calls for carefully thinking about the users who can benefit from the information you have to share. Ideally, you’ve been developing your research, product, or program in close collaboration with your intended users. That way, perhaps you already know how best to reach them. But what about when your audience includes those who are harder to reach and too often not taken into account in traditional KT strategies? People living in rural areas, who are unhoused, do not speak or read the language dominant in their communities, or are in other ways underserved by most KT strategies merit additional tailoring of products and outreach methods to benefit from research. New relationships may need to be forged so informational exchange can be grounded in trust. This conference invites presenters to share their experiences and insight for peer-to-peer learning and discussion.
