New Knowledge Translation Task Force Invites Members

The new Knowledge Translation Task Force, led by the MNG Communications Officer, Jennifer Weaver, is seeking new members. Some of the key objectives that will shape how they take on projects in 2019 are:

  1. Understand the translation of measurement concepts, measures and their applications into clinical practice and research.
  2. Contribute to the evidence in understanding the factors related to uptake and implementation of standardized assessments in clinical practice.
  3. Disseminate the mechanisms to facilitate knowledge translation surrounding measurement-related applications.

Members of this group, as well as the other MNG task forces, contribute to the MNG newsletter by writing original articles. We are excited to see new members join this task force and facilitate the knowledge translation of measurement. 

Learn more by contacting Knowledge Translation Task Force Chair, Jennifer Weaver.
