Research and Knowledge Mobilization Submissions to CORE Canada
When CBSS agencies are engaged in research as active partners, there can be a considerable added value to the research, and benefit to the agency and the community. Value-add can include validation of research through access to different sources of knowledge and increased opportunity for qualitative information; community empowerment; organizational learning; and development of relationships that can activate application of knowledge.
To disseminate research and support its application to real-world practice, it must be mobilized through means accessible to practitioners and policymakers. CORE Canada provides a platform to bridge research and practice by:
- sharing information on research conferences, symposia, webinars, and other learning opportunities;
- sharing opportunities for community participation in research;
- featuring research and reports relevant to healthy aging and the CBSS sector.
If you are an organization interested in sharing research results or opportunities for participation on CORE Canada, please complete and send the appropriate submission template below to email@example.com
Please note that all submissions must be consistent with the requirements for content on CORE:
- Be relevant to Healthy Aging, CBSS sector, and/or community organization/non-profit organizational development;
- Be current;
- Be from a reputable source;
- Be reflective of best practice.
Research Conference and Symposia Submissions: If you have a research event relevant to healthy aging and community-based seniors’ services and would like to share program and registration information and/or calls for presentations, please fill out this template.
New Healthy Aging Research Submissions: Research studies and reports included on CORE are vetted to ensure they are relevant to healthy aging, current, and reflective of best practice. If you have a research report you would like to share on CORE, please fill out this template.
Research Participation Opportunities: Supporting the creation and mobilization of knowledge about how we age, and the kinds of environments, supports, policies, and practices that contribute to healthy aging is an important goal of CORE. CORE provides an opportunity to connect researchers with members of the CBSS sector, to further the goal of supporting and advancing the health, wellbeing, and independence of older Canadians. Research participation opportunities posted on CORE range from basic requests to distribute surveys or participate in interviews or focus groups, to more involved partnerships. To be included on CORE, submissions must demonstrate a commitment to:
- knowledge mobilization and community impact (eg. show how the study will benefit the CBSS sector and/or the older adults it serves)
- bridging research and practice (eg. intent to inform practice/be informed by practice)
- transparency (eg. provide accessible and clear information regarding the research)
- ethics and accountability (eg. provide evidence of appropriate ethics review and approval)
- sharing results (eg. following study completion, a plain language summary of the study’s findings will be provided for sharing on Healthy Aging CORE)
- providing a clear benefit to participants (eg. compensation or remuneration, or potential to improve programs, services)
Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org. a brief description of the research initiative, the timeframe (deadline), who can participate and how, any relevant promotional materials, and a brief note on how the above commitments will be met.
