Bridging the Gap: Transforming Knowledge into Action
July 8-12, 2006, Washington, DC, USA
The methods include four phases: Research & Development, Prototype Development, Evaluation, and Planning for Deployment. Each phase will be described, including the needs assessment and gap analysis; development of the 5 prototype resources, evaluation mechanisms for both the content and technological transfer components; and finally an overview of the Internet tools that allowed for this project to happen virtually over vast geographic distances. Results: Five new web-based resources on pain management are available in Spanish, with evaluation of the knowledge and technology transfer process that underlined their adaptation to the Internet in linguistically, culturally, and technologically relevant ways. In addition, community building tools were also developed in Spanish and are available independent of the web-resources for other knowledge transfer endeavours. The evaluation data are also concrete results that will be discussed, including the initial on-line needs assessment and resource selection process.
