Knowledge Hub Research Briefings are now available in English and French 

The Knowledge Hub launched its Research Briefings Series in Fall 2020. This series features the projects funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada’s investment, “Supporting the health of victims of domestic violence and child abuse through community programs” with a focus on research findings and its implications for policy, practice, and research. The Research Briefings are high quality brief 10-15-minute presentations by community of practice members with a 5-minute Q&A session. The presentations feature simultaneous French interpretation and closed captioning in English. The recordings are posted on the Knowledge Hub website. We are hosting the online presentations based on projects’ end dates with priority given to projects that have already wrapped up their research and activities.

The Research Briefings had a total of 4,954 registrants. Participants have shared in evaluation surveys that they have enjoyed the format of the research briefings and appreciated the resources shared through them:  

“I appreciated that it was a short introduction to a topic that I want to learn more about -- It provided me with a chance to get some information and then opportunities to learn more. 20-30 minutes over lunch was perfect. Easy to commit too when things are very busy!”  

“Good overview of the intervention and the research, with references for more reading. (I have already downloaded one of the journal articles.)”  

“Very thorough in a short amount of time”

VIDEO SPOTS  

The Knowledge Hub is always looking for opportunities to promote PHAC funded projects in an engaging way to Canadian communities and to help promote their resources. In March 2021, the Knowledge Hub in collaboration with a media company recorded a series of “video moments” or “video spots” featuring project members. The purpose of the video spots is to highlight the personal aspects of the projects for individuals, possible final report highlights, and insights from doing trauma and violence-informed intervention research. The Knowledge Hub developed a series of suggested questions that project members responded to. The questions included personal “aha” moments, insights, and reflections from their trauma-and violence-informed projects. Stay tuned for the video spots that will be posted on our website and shared on social media platforms!
