Title: Translational Science in Health Professions Education: Approaches to effective Implementation

Join Us for The AFREhealth Webinar by the Health Professions Education Research Technical Working Group (TWG)

Introduction: There is a growing evidence base in HPE across the globe. This evidence is both from high income and low-income contexts. High-stakes decisions such as selection, assessment, and licensure demand an evidence-informed approach to HPE. Knowledge translation aims to promote the uptake and application of research evidence to improve educational practices and ultimately patient care. Efforts to inform and improve HPE should be underpinned by the science (theories, models, methods) of knowledge translation, also known as implementation science. There is urgent need in sub-Saharan Africa to operationalize current evidence into our teaching and learning activities. By the end of this webinar, participants shall have understood the importance of translating HPE scholarship into educational practice.
