Get Involved

The CTFPHC involves primary care practitioners in many of its activities. See the links below for more information on how you can participate.

 

Participate In Activities

  • Clinical Prevention Leaders Network: The CTFPHC has partnered with the Knowledge Translation (KT) Program at St. Michael’s Hospital to develop a 2-year pilot project aimed at developing a volunteer network of Clinical Prevention Leaders (CPLs) across Canada. The purpose of this network will be to promote the dissemination and implementation of the CTFPHC’s evidence-based guidelines and patient/clinician KT tools in local primary care practice across Canada. The selected CPLs will be influential primary care practitioners who will actively promote the CTFPHC guidelines and KT tools among members of their networks by sharing resources and providing educational outreach and training.

  • Usability Testing: The CTFPHC produces practitioner and patient knowledge translation tools to support each of its guidelines. To ensure that the content, layout, navigation, and aesthetics of these tools are appropriate and useful for practice, we conduct usability testing with practitioners. If you are interested in reviewing and providing feedback on one of our upcoming guideline tools, please email Kavitha Thiyagarajah, research assistant, at thiyagarajak@smh.ca for more information. Note that we offer $100 compensation for a one-hour telephone interview (no travel required).
  • Annual Evaluation: The CTFPHC conducts an annual evaluation of its work to measure the impact of dissemination activities and the uptake of clinical practice guidelines, KT tools, and KT resources. We invite practitioners to take part in the evaluation by either completing an online survey (for a chance to enter an iPad draw) or participating in a one-hour telephone interview ($100 compensation). For more information on how to get involved, please email Kavitha Thiyagarajah, research assistant, at thiyagarajak@smh.ca. Surveys and interviews are conducted in January and February of each year.
