Project 2: Knowledge Mobilization (KM) & Evaluation

Project timeline: 2017 to 2022

Dr. Williams has partnered with Carers Canada and the Canadian Home Care Association to create awareness, understanding, and broad uptake of the Standard in order to support a healthy and productive workforce in Canada. Success in KM will lead to increased knowledge of and uptake of the Standard, which will be facilitated by free download of the Standard and associated KM tools on the CSA Communities website. Further, KM efforts will target healthcare organizations that show a higher level of readiness for change, as well as engage Canada’s Human Resources Professional Association (HRPA).   

Assessment of the KM plan will be carried out at different times during the process, to ensure the knowledge has been mobilized. Assessment will focus on two critical aspects: (1) Reach (number of appropriate organizations or key stakeholders who have been contacted); and (2) Effectiveness (success of the knowledge translation initiative in terms of knowledge acquired and intent to change).
