Abstract:
Knowledge Translation of Children's Research in Rural Communities
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2004
Conference Date:July 22-24, 2004
Author:Critchley, Kimberley A., RN, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:University of Prince Edward Island
Title:Associate Professor University of Prince edward Island School of Nursing
Present state of knowledge: Knowledge translation(KT)has become a priority for many research organizations. This has emerged as a priority due to the fact that many decision makers have not turned to academic research findings in developing programs or policies. Objective: This research,identifying effective KT strategies in rural Prince Edward Island, is built on developing and evaluating strategies through a partnership with rural communities in Prince Edward Island (PEI). Design: KT research is most effective through interactive means of engagement (St. Croix, 2001) and this forms the basis of this research. Setting: PEI provides a unique environment for the exploration of the challenges associated with KT in rural, Aboriginal, Atlantic Maritime contexts. IT represents a society with strong traditional roots founded on agriculture, fishing and tourism which is currently undergoing the changes associated with the demise of rural life. Communities of PEI, built on principles of cooperation and mutual support and sustained by strong family structures, are experiencing a declining population, struggling to maintain economic prosperity and facing issues related to accessible health care delivery, sustainability,KT, and capacity building. Concepts studies: It is an ideal time to investigate strategies, tools, and resources to inform and empower residents to enable them to take charge of their own health care. Method: This research involves transdisciplinary, participatory research to identify strategies, approaches, tools, and resources that promote effective knowledge translation in ways that may result in a transformation of the attitudes and health related behaviours of children in rural and Aboriginal communities on PEI. Hypothesis: This research suggests that when rural communities are engaged in unique, participatory forms of relationship building and approaches that translate research results into meaningful information and programs, positive changes in children’s’ attitudes and behaviours will result. Conclusion: Passive dissemination of information is generally ineffective in changing practice.
