Webcast: Offering Tailored Technical Assistance as a Knowledge Translation Strategy

Ryan Williams, PhD, Research Director for the Center on Knowledge Translation for Employment Research presented findings from a study testing a knowledge translation strategy among a business-oriented audience.

Study participants had supervisory authority, worked in human resources, or were professionals, such as vocational rehabilitation counselors, whose responsibilities could involve supporting employees with cancer in the workplace.

The study tested whether an offer of follow-up technical assistance helped to sustain knowledge gains and promote application among individuals who attended a webcast and received other informational resources about cancer survivors' employment issues and the reasonable accommodations process. The presentation will also describe business outreach planned in the KTER Center's new award cycle, which will focus on collaboration with the National Employment Team (NET) of the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation (CSAVR). 

Joe Bontke, Outreach Manager and Ombudsman for the Houston District office of U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, will join Dr. Williams for a lively discussion about the implications of these research findings.

DATE: This webinar took place on August 30, 2016.
