Patient Oriented Knowledge Translation (PO-KT): What does this mean?

Lynne Feehan, PT PhD
Knowledge Translation Lead, BC, SUPPORT Unit

This presentation will explore the relationship, overlap and synergies between patient-oriented research (POR) and knowledge translation (KT). As well, we will consider some challenges and opportunities with supporting patient (family, care-givers) engagement in KT activities. Moving from a focus on patient engagement in the research process (i.e. patient-oriented knowledge creation) to also supporting patient engagement across the full KT spectrum; including patient- oriented knowledge syntheses, dissemination, implementation and other KT practices.

Exploring Paths to Healing with Formerly Incarcerated Men

Evidence indicates that a high prevalence of trauma experience among incarcerated populations, including substantial childhood adversity, with at least 50% reporting a history of childhood sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse. Experiencing childhood trauma has been shown to alter brain development and impact the ability to establish supportive relationships and regulate emotions. The experience of incarceration itself is also emerging as a recognized form of trauma, with well documented impacts on physical and mental health. Supported by the Vancouver Foundation and the Health Canada-Substance Use and Addictions Program, a five-year project will engage formerly incarcerated men to identify opportunities to raise awareness about the links between trauma, resiliency, and health-related behaviour. Using a series of focus groups, interviews, and a photo-voice project, we seek to understand how to foster resiliency among men with a history of incarceration and work with key stakeholders to co-develop a trauma- and resilience-oriented health literacy resource for use in community and institutional settings.
