Jon Salsberg, PhD has undertaken participatory and integrated KT research with a wide range of stakeholders in health care services, policy, and within communities; and is co-author of CIHR’s Guide to Researcher and Knowledge User Collaboration in Health Research. He was a founding member of Participatory Research at McGill (PRAM), and is currently Senior Lecturer in Primary Healthcare Research – Public and Patient Involvement, in the Graduate Entry Medical School, University of Limerick, Ireland

Abstract: In order to create and translate knowledge for action and change, researchers engage with knowledge users – such as patients, providers or communities – who must ultimately take ownership of the issue under study and the means of addressing it. Social network analysis provides useful tools for measuring changes in levels of engagement and ownership over the course of a researcher-knowledge user partnership. This talk will introduce social networks and basic concepts and measures from social network analysis, and provide results from a study tracking the evolution of community stakeholder ownership.

In person or webinar presentations and Q/As will be broadcast online, and will be archived on the IHPME website. You can watch the recorded videos of previous seminars at: http://ihpme.utoronto.ca/hssp-seminar-archives/
