Knowledge Mobilization and Evaluation

What We Do

  • Support and build Diabetes Action Canada’s knowledge mobilization capacity through various resources, including a learning toolkit, a consultation service, and a virtual community of practice.
  • Work collaboratively with Diabetes Action Canada members to help support the sharing of their research findings and to mobilize their research results into practice and policy.
  • Optimize Diabetes Action Canada’s knowledge mobilization activities and objectives through the continuous evaluation and improvement of knowledge mobilization processes and resources.
  • Use our expertise to provide evaluation design and methodological support to all patient-oriented research programs, using various types and approaches as needed.

Get Involved

You will participate in discussions approximately once a month pertaining to research projects and strategic goals of the Network. You can also get involved in a research team! Researchers need your feedback to make sure research projects are relevant for people living with diabetes.

Knowledge Mobilization Consultation Service
