Thanks for participating in the 2016 online KT Conference!

Communication Tools for Moving Research to Practice

This year's online conference is designed for researchers and others to learn about current and innovative communication tools, including social media, in order to increase the use of evidence-based research findings though knowledge translation (KT) activities. Researchers funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) use KT strategies to share their research with a variety of audiences in order to create a change in awareness, behavior, or action on the part of the identified audience. This Conference Archive is pre-approved for 10 hours CRC-CEUs through 12-11-17
