Virtual Poster Exhibit

Poster sessions

We will have two, 1-hour sessions dedicated to structured discussion & networking with poster presenters. These will take place on May 5 and May 7.  These sessions will be held in Zoom breakout rooms. 

During the structured poster sessions, there will be two poster presenters (presenting two projects), an evaluator, an event staff, and a number of audience members in each breakout room. The format will look like this: 




Evaluator asks presenter 1 a series of questions

2:29 – 2:30

Switch over to presenter 2

2:30 – 2:39

Evaluator asks presenter 2 a series of questions 

2:39 – 2:40

The two presenters are moved (by the meeting host) from their current breakout room to the next breakout room, where they will go through the process again with a new evaluator.

Presenters will get a 1-minute warning via broadcast message in the breakout room.

This pattern (above) will happen three times in a row – so the two presenters, together, will have joined three different breakout rooms in the span of one hour. 

The evaluators and the audience in each room will remain the same, and the presenters will be rotated through. The presenters will be moved through 3 out of the 5 breakout rooms.  Evaluators are expected to review the poster presenters’ submitted materials (poster and/or recording) before this session.

Incorporating Intersectionality in Knowledge Translation Practice: Usability Testing of Tools to Facilitate Uptake in Intervention Design and Implementation

Intersectionality is a concept introduced by Black feminist scholars that can advance equity considerations. Intersectionality emphasizes that human experience is shaped by a combination of social categories (e.g., ethnicity, gender), embedded in systemic power structures. Using an intersectional approach […]

Allied Health—Translating Research into Practice (AH-TRIP): a multidisciplinary initiative to improve clinician-led knowledge translation.

The Allied Health—Translating Research into Practice (AH-TRIP) initiative aims to embed KT within the usual business of hospital health services […]
