The Scientist Knowledge Translation Training (SKTT) masterclass is being hosted on April 9th and 10th 2018 by the Centre for Mental Health and Community Research at Maynooth University, as part of the new LinKT (Linking into Knowledge Translation) project, a sub-study of the ENRICH research programme.

The SKTT masterclass is a two-day course that aims to build capacity for knowledge translation (KT) and dissemination amongst researchers working in the area of child and family health and/or prevention and early intervention. This will help to build an awareness and understanding of KT and strengthen skills for conducting KT and dissemination activities. The SKTT masterclass will be delivered by Dr. Melanie Barwick, Senior Scientist in the Child Evaluative Sciences Program of the SickKids’ Research Institute, and Head of the Child and Youth Mental Health Research Unit (CYMHRU) in the Department of Psychiatry at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), Toronto.

Dr. Melanie Barwick is an internationally recognised expert in implementation science and knowledge translation and has a programme of health services research that spans health, mental health, education, and global health sectors. Her research aims to improve the implementation of evidence into practice and to broaden the reach of evidence more generally to support decision making, policy, knowledge and awareness. Web:
