The Diabetes Population Risk Tool (DPoRT) was developed to support population-based diabetes risk assessment and health system planning decisions. A knowledge brokering team both facilitated and evaluated an integrated knowledge translation (IKT) approach to support the use of DPoRT in varied health settings within Ontario and Manitoba. The process and outcome evaluation was designed based on the Population Health Planning Knowledge-to-Action (KtoA) framework to assess partnership development, the effectiveness and impact of the KtoA process, and facilitators and barriers of DPoRT use. An overview of the IKT strategy and findings from the evaluation will be presented.

Presenter: Dr. Laura Rosella
