Knowledge Mobilization 101

by Dr. Travis Sztainert, Knowledge Broker

Skills in knowledge mobilization (KMb) are becoming increasingly important for securing research funding, with all of the federal Tri-Council Funding Agencies (i.e., SSHRC; NSERC; CIHR) requiring or recommending evidence of a KMb plan for grant applications to be successful. Further, KMb is essential to bridging the knowledge-to-action gap, helping to ensure that research knowledge is put to use in a timely manner that benefits the individuals, groups, and contexts most likely to be affected.

Starting and Operating an Independent Professional Practice in Psychology

by Dr. Stephen Carter, C.Psych.

For many psychologists, the possibility of opening a private practice is an attractive but uncertain alternative to working in the public system.

Steve Carter has many years of experience as a private practitioner, and has designed this course to lead anyone interested in exploring this option through the many preparations and steps necessary to make that transition. He discusses what type of person will be most able to be a successful private practitioner. He lays out how to plan an office, what to buy. He stresses the importance of budgets, shareholder's agreements, office policies and procedures. He deals in great depth with the importance of marketing in building a thriving practice. He attempts to make sense of the GST regulations. Finally, he deals with the very important issue of self care, all the while sharing his successes and failures. This course is accompanied by the various forms and check sheets that he has developed over the years.
