The Task Force involves primary care practitioners in many of its activities. See the links below for more information on how you can participate.
Participate In Activities
- Usability Testing – Practitioners: The Task Force 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 us at KTteam@canadiantaskforce.ca. No travel required. Participants will be paid for their time.
- Usability Testing – General Public: For each of its guidelines, the Task Force develops knowledge translation tools to help practitioners and patients make preventive health care decisions related to the guideline. To ensure that the tools are useful, we recruit members of the public to provide feedback on them. If you are interested in reviewing and providing feedback on one of our upcoming guideline tools, please email us at KTteam@canadiantaskforce.ca for more information. Note that we offer compensation for a one-hour teleconference focus group (no travel required).
- Patient Engagement in Guideline Development: The Task Force involves members of the public in its guideline development process. Specifically, the Task Force uses feedback from the public to guide the search for evidence on the guideline topic and to develop knowledge translation tools to accompany the guidelines. If you are interested in providing input, please email us at KTteam@canadiantaskforce.ca for more information. Note that we offer compensation and all tasks are completed remotely (no travel required).
- Annual Evaluation: The Task Force 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. For more information on how to get involved, please email us at KTteam@canadiantaskforce.ca. Surveys and interviews are conducted in January and February of each year. Participants will be paid for their time.
