KT Connects - "Who’s ready for engagement with rural communities? Moving from stakeholders to partners in knowledge translation and exchange"
Speaker - Dr. Neil Hanlon (PhD), Professor at University of Northern British Columbia

Rural populations are historically underrepresented in health research. Simply having more research take place in rural settings, however, is not enough to address this gap in knowledge. We will consider the idea that community members may wish to be partners, and not merely ‘stakeholders,’ in research. To do so, we will explore community-based participatory research approach as a means to achieve a deeper commitment to rural health research. Such an approach presents exciting opportunities for knowledge translation and exchange, but it is important that everyone concerned have a realistic idea of their roles and responsibilities in a participatory research process.

Learning objectives:

- Examine the notion of stakeholder engagement in the context of community-based participatory research in rural and small town places.
- Recognize the diversity and heterogeneity of rural community settings, and the challenges and opportunities these present for knowledge creation.
- Consider the implications of participatory rural engagement for knowledge translation and exchange.
