Our 2020 theme was “Social Media Strategies for Knowledge Translation.” Presenters addressed key questions pertinent to any researcher or product developer: How can social media help me understand what people need? or want to know from my work? How can it be used as a tool to involve individuals and organizations as I plan a project and get it up and running? The conference included discussions of using social media to recruit research participants and ensure ongoing stakeholder engagement. Throughout the conference, careful attention was paid to making sure these social media strategies were accessible to people with disabilities. On October 26, 28 and 30, 2020, participants were able to view and ask questions through the event’s virtual conference platform.
