Seminar Series – July 9, 2020

Dr. Alex Korall

Engaging patient and public partners in a scoping review on the science and practice of James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnerships

 Biography:

Alex is a postdoctoral researcher in the knowledge translation (KT) platform of the George & Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) at the University of Manitoba. A key focus of Alex’s research is to advance the practice of KT for the prevention and management of falls and fall-related injuries in older people. A secondary focus of Alex’s research has been to advance the science of KT, when it is necessary to inform her KT practice objectives. This includes her current work funded by CHI and the SPOR Evidence Alliance engaging patient and public partners in the design and conduct of a scoping review on the science and practice of James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnerships.

 

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this presentation the audience will have a better understanding of:

  1. The James Lind Alliance (JLA) process for determining the collective priorities of patients, carers and clinicians for future research on a given health condition
  2. The scoping review method for knowledge synthesis
  3. Our plan to engage patient and public partners in the design and conduct of the scoping review
