Diverse theories and approaches exist for the implementation of evidence in practice. These frameworks for knowledge translation are predominantly described and delivered in developed countries. The Global Evidence Summit offers an opportunity to bring together individuals and organisations active in health and social research to share experiences and learnings of the application of implementation and knowledge translation frameworks in LMIC and the role of international collaboration.
The 90 minute session will include brief presentations by each panelist and facilitated discussion/conversation with the audience.
- Implementation specialists from health and social research will briefly present key features of frameworks used in their fields (2x12 minutes)
- Case studies from health and social sciences including primary care in Africa and acute care in Asia will illustrate how existing frameworks have been used in practice. Theme for each of the cases studies will be relevant to women’s health. (3x10 minutes)
- Presenters will join a panel to stimulate a facilitated open discussion forum with all attendees. Key questions the forum may consider include: (35 minutes)
- Can frameworks for knowledge translation developed in western health systems readily be applied in LMIC? How do they overcome contextual issues unique to LMIC?
- What have the GES partner organisations’ done to foster use of evidence in decision making in LMIC to date? What more can they do?
- What does meaningful collaboration in knowledge translation in health and social research look like in LMIC?
- Does involvement of international organisations help or hinder the implementation of evidence in practice in LMIC?
- How can organisations work together to foster implementation of knowledge translation frameworks in decision making?
Following the examples presented in the case studies, attendees will be encouraged to raise their own questions and share their experiences, learnings and views.
