Patient Oriented Knowledge Translation in Rehabilitation

Billions of dollars have been invested globally in health research, but the knowledge is unlikely to translate into health benefits if it is not being used in clinical practice or by individuals to inform their action. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss recent research that aims to modernize the process of knowledge translation and enhance health of people with osteoarthritis.

This presentation consists of two parts.  First, recent research on digital tools for promoting physical activity and supporting patients to make evidence-informed treatment decisions will be discussed. Second, it will explore strategies to meaningfully engage patients in the development and evaluation of these tools. A new framework will be introduced to guide the process of meaningful patient involvement in the research process.

Followed by abstract submissions.
