Co-Development of Novel Knowledge Translation Techniques for Patients with Cirrhosis
Puneeta Tandon
1706 College Plaza, 8215 - 112 Street NW Edmonton, AB T6G 2C8
The Cirrhosis Care Alberta (CCAB) project is a province-wide initiative aimed at improving the care of patients with cirrhosis. To supplement these initiatives, our research and patient advisory teams (PAT) have co-developed written educational materials that will be available on our website. Our patient advisors have also highlighted the importance of providing education about cirrhosis through other knowledge translation techniques like videos.

In this project, the successful applicant will work with our research team, a video animator and PAT to co-develop animated videos around cirrhosis topics and evaluate their usability and effectiveness. Throughout this project there will be opportunities to develop skills in knowledge translation techniques, animated video creation, data collection with patients, and qualitative and quantitative data analysis. Experience with video development/animation would be an asset. As this position is contingent on funding, applicants will be expected to apply for studentship awards (which our team will help to facilitate).
