Colloquium with Dr. Christine Chambers on ‘From Evidence to Influence: Making a Difference for Children in Pain’.

February 9 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


Join UBC’s Department of Psychology for a colloquium featuring Dr. Christine Chambers, Dalhousie University

Title: From Evidence to Influence: Making a Difference for Children in Pain

In the long run, scientific research will only help patients if it can be effectively disseminated and implemented. Unfortunately, the public is generally unaware of the value and importance of psychological research and best available evidence is often not used in practice or integrated into policy. The full potential of research can only be realized if it is effectively disseminated to patients, health care providers, policymakers, and other stakeholders, and implemented into clinical practice and health policy. This plenary will provide an overview of the practice of dissemination and the science of implementation as applied to children’s pain management. Dissemination involves the sharing and spreading of scientific findings, while implementation focuses on the use of strategies to adopt and integrate science-based intervention to change practice and improve care. The presentation will highlight how, to make gains in health outcomes, including children’s pain, one must consider the application of scientific discoveries to different types of knowledge users and settings, the value of partnerships, the importance of patient engagement, and the role of evolving communication technologies. These factors are critical in promoting sustainable uptake and moving research from bench to bedside and beyond.
