The Canadian Patient Safety Institute is pleased to announce a new six-part webinar series focused on Knowledge Translation and Implementation Science!

Knowledge Translation and Implementation Science are interested in the scientific study of implementation determinants, processes and outcomes to inform guidance and tools that can be used to implement evidence-based practices, including patient safety initiatives.

Watch on Demand: Webinar Series

​Webinar 1: Introduction to Knowledge Translation and Implementation Science​February 26th, 2018
​Webinar 2: Knowledge creation & synthesis​March 28th, 2018
​Webinar 3: Who needs to do what, differently, to promote implementation?​April 4th, 2018
Webinar 4: Identifying barriers and enablers, and determinants, in theory​May 2nd, 2018
Webinar 5: Identifying barriers and enablers, and determinants, in practice​May 30th, 2018
Webinar 6: Selecting strategies and techniques best suited to address barriers measurement and evaluation​June 19, 2018

Who should register for these webinars:

Participants may include the providers and leaders who are new to knowledge translation and implementation science and are interested in considering how they might leverage such approaches when planning and evaluation the implementation of patient safety initiatives.

What you can expect:

Attendees should expect to consider how contemporary approaches in knowledge translation and implementation science can be directly applied to enhance their current patient safety work, in terms of a broader understanding of knowledge translation and implementation science and concrete steps, approaches and tools for rigorous application of knowledge translation and implementation science.


The webinar series is broken up into six, one-hour sessions designed as a suite, with each session building on the last and thus would be ideally suited to those who are able to participate in all six. If you are not able to attend all six, there is the option to register for independent sessions. Additionally, all sessions will be recorded and will be available for download on the CPSI website.

  • Dr. Jeremy Grimshaw,
  • Dr. Justin Presseau,
  • Dr. Andrea Patey

Jeremy Grimshaw received a MBChB from the University of Edinburgh, UK. He trained as a family physician prior to undertaking a PhD in health services research at the University of Aberdeen. He moved to Canada in 2002. His research focuses on the evaluation of interventions to disseminate and implement evidence-based practice. Jeremy is: a Senior Scientist in the Clinical Epidemiology Program, Ottawa Health Research Institute; a Full Professor in the Department of Medicine, University of Ottawa and a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Health Knowledge Transfer and Uptake. In 2015 he was elected co-chair of the Campbell Collaboration and became Corresponding Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He was the Director of Cochrane Canada (2006-2015) and the Co-ordinating Editor of the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care group (1997-2015).

Justin Presseau is a Scientist at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, Assistant Professor in the School of Epidemiology and Public Health and the School of Psychology at the University of Ottawa, and the Scientific Lead for Knowledge Translation at the Ottawa Methods Centre. Dr. Presseau's research program operates at the intersection between health psychology and implementation science, drawing upon behaviour change theories and methods to understand factors that promote and undermine behaviour change in healthcare settings, and to design and evaluate theory-based strategies for promoting healthcare professional behaviour change to increase best practice and reduce non-evidenced practice in healthcare. Dr. Presseau has a PhD in Psychology from the University of Aberdeen (Scotland), has been awarded early career awards from the UK Society for Behavioural Medicine, the International Society of Behavioral Medicine, and the European Health Psychology Society and is an Associate Editor for journals Implementation Science and Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being

Andrea Patey is a Senior Clinical Research Associate within the Centre for Implementation Research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. She holds a PhD in Health Psychology from City, University of London. Her interests in Knowledge Translation and Implementation Research include the application of psychological theory and methods to explain and change health professional behaviours across a range of clinical settings. Andrea's interest in behaviour change focuses specifically around whether implementation and de-implementation differ and if interventions to target each should differ. The broad objectives of her research are to promote the delivery of evidence-based healthcare through the development and evaluation of complex behaviour change interventions.
