Innovation Incubator

Through this highly interactive workshop, participants will begin by defining a shared understanding of integrated knowledge translation. Participants will then discover what it means to “innovate”, and how innovations can be applied to knowledge translation science. Through creative brainstorming techniques and by building partnerships with other participants, attendees will have the opportunity to generate and expand on innovative knowledge translation projects ideas. As an example, an open-mic style period will allow participants to share their project ideas – no matter how daring, outrageous, creative or out-of-the-box they might be. The session will conclude with concrete actions to further conceptualize the ideas discussed, and will encourage partners to participate in the Innovation Incubator funding competition to help bring a unique, innovative integrated Knowledge Translation (iKT) project to life.

CAPHC Presents!: Introducing CHILD-BRIGHT: Get involved in our patient-oriented research network


Get to know CHILD-BRIGHT, an innovative pan-Canadian network that aims to improve life outcomes for children with brain-based developmental disabilities and their families.

Join Dr. Annette Majnemer, along with Dr. Steven Miller, Dr. Dan Goldowitz, Frank Gavin and Dr. Keiko Shikako-Thomas as they share an overview of the network and how it is currently supported by patient-oriented research, patient-oriented training, citizen engagement and knowledge translation programs.

From this presentation, participants should come to appreciate:

  • How our research aims to improve child health and development, enhance patient/family experience, and develop cost-effective strategies.
  • How patients, families, researchers, clinicians, policy makers, and other key stakeholders are working together to (1) create novel interventions to optimize development, (2) identify better ways to deliver responsive and supportive services, and (3) improve systems, knowledge, and practices to ensure better outcomes for these children and their families
  • How CAPHC’s international community of child and youth health care practitioners, patients, families, researchers and other stakeholders can impact our decisions, activities and events.
