The Center on KTDRR will host a morning workshop (8:00 AM - 12:00 PM) on Tips of the Trade: Developing High Quality Research Syntheses. Dr. Chad Nye and Dr. Oliver Wendt will describe the rationale and procedures for developing research syntheses to support evidence-based decisions in disability and rehabilitation-related fields.
SEDL's Knowledge Translation for Employment Research (KTER) Center will sponsor an afternoon workshop on the 17th (1:00 - 5:00 PM). An updated version of Barriers and Supports for Research Use will present results from KTER Center research activities, including strategies for overcoming obstacles and ways to promote the use of high quality research information to support employment of people with disabilities.
(“pretty darn quick”) provides rapid access to systematic reviews of health systems evidence. PDQ-Evidence links together systematic reviews, overviews of reviews and primary studies, thus providing a highly efficient method for searching.

. This casebook, the third in a series, acknowledges research and innovation initiatives across the broad spectrum of health in Alberta. While the research involves different populations, stakeholders, and settings, the results highlight the strength and diversity of knowledge translation in the province.

The KTDRR Center is working with several international partners.
The Campbell Collaboration (C2) will support the development of systematic reviews in the Disability Subgroup. KTDRR will participate in the C2 Colloquium in Chicago, May 21-23, 2013.
The US Cochrane Center's Consumers United for Evidence-based Healthcare (CUE) will work with KTDRR on increasing consumer access to disability and rehabilitation research.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) will provide webcasts on innovative KT strategies.
The Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Co-ordinating Centre (EPPI-Centre), based in London, will offer webcasts on increasing the use of evidence in policy decisions.
