Growing Expertise in Knowledge Translation and Evaluation (GEEK) Information Session - Shared screen with speaker view
Hi everyone. If you have questions for Saskia please type them here and I will get her to answer them for you.
Can the proposals be technology oriented?
Thanks for the question Shehroz, hold tight. Saskia will answer in a minute.
Two community-led organizations are planning to submit unique proposals that will adapt an existing, online, evidence-based education program developed by McMaster University for caregivers of people living with dementia. They plan to spread and scale this existing program in their unique community contexts. Does this fit the criteria?
Sheheroz check out our ONtrepreneurs program here: https://braininstitute.ca/programs-opportunities/ontrepreneurs-program
As a followup to the McMaster question, funds could flow from the community led organizations to McMaster to support the adaptations?
do retirement homes/longterm care homes fit the community criteria - our education program is provided by a charity to workers in long-term care and retirement
Thank you for the clarity!
ok i can provide more info :)
our community led organization acquired brain injury agency offers outreach supports (supported independent living). Could we expand on this support by enlarging our employability options?
I did it get audio for this meeting. will you send a link later?
can you repeat the information about the estimate of funds that were provided?
We are currently offering an educational training for businesses in our community so they can communicate better with people with aphasia or a communication barrier. After we want to have those with aphasia access the businesses to measure the success of the training and want to expand this education training to other communities, Would this fit the criteria?
by providng an education program to the employers in order to hire individuals who have a brain injury - accessibility for the person with disability
supportive housing - having a budget for staff to find appropriate housing
