Shannon Scott is a new Canada Research Chair for Knowledge Translation in Child Health

Congratulations to Dr. Shannon Scott, TREKK Needs Assessment Co-Director, who was awarded a Canada Research Chair for Knowledge Translation in Child Health (Tier 2) at the University of Alberta. Shannon's research focuses on Knowledge Translation - a process that guides the latest knowledge into clinical practice to improve the health of Canadians. Her 'translating Evidence in Child Health to enhance Outcomes' (or ECHO) research program aims to improve the health outcomes of children in Alberta and Canada through application of the best research evidence. Read more at trekk.ca.  


 


Data presentation methods: What's most effective?

 University of Alberta  summer student, Annie Pentney, looked at the most effective ways to present survey data collected in our Needs Assessment Phase. Her project, Data Presentation for National Prioritization in a Pan-Canadian Study, found the infographic to be more effective for presenting data to a multidiscipinary team than a traditional method.  Visit trekk.ca for more information.
