3 credits

This course will provide students with the skills to conduct and put translational research into practice by ensuring that new treatments and research knowledge are integrated into evidence-based practices using a TI-HR perspective. In consultation with their professional learning network (PLN), students will refine translational practice strategies and models in multidisciplinary settings. Students will hone their translational science skills and dissemination of research to practice expertise using a variety of information and communication technologies and PLNs within direct practice contexts. Students will demonstrate their expertise within PLNs on research-to-practice outcomes, the benefits of reflective inquiry using translational practice collaborative approaches, and the use of professional feedback loops through a variety of digital platforms to advance direct practice.
