Workshop Learning Objectives were to:

  1. Recognise modern day challenges around research knowledge transfer and exchange
  2. Identify research knowledge dissemination tools available (both traditional and non-traditional)
  3. Understand a knowledge transfer and exchange model for palliative care research (EMTReK)
  4. Practiced application of the EMTReK model to a palliative care research project
  5. Appreciate the importance of periodic dissemination plan evaluation


ALL respondents to the evaluation survey distributed post workshop confirmed they would recommend attending the Knowledge Transfer and Exchange Workshop for Palliative Care Research. Participants’ feedback also included:

‘Very useful workshop – Model is well thought out but most useful was to sit down and consider challenge of KT (Knowledge Transfer). EMTReK is a very useful structure…Really enjoyable and relevant day…. Expanded my understanding of model and interaction with new people was really helpful and stimulating.’
