KT Connects: Co-design research methods with community partners—benefits and challenges
**IMPORTANT: In honour of National Day for Truth & Reconciliation on September 30, this webinar will be held one week later than originally planned, on October 7 at 12 pm.**

In health research, co-design is the process of collaborating with end users to create, test, and refine resources that aim to improve engagement, satisfaction, and health outcomes. In this webinar, Dr. Allison Ezzat will share methods used to co-design two online toolkits housed on the Translating Research Evidence and Knowledge (TREK) platform:

1) Musculoskeletal Telehealth Toolkit, which sought to improve the knowledge and confidence of physiotherapists to provide care via telehealth, and
2) My Knee, an education and self-management toolkit for people with knee osteoarthritis.

Dr. Ezzat will describe the formative research that directly contributed to the development of these toolkits, share her experience in managing challenges throughout the development process, and explain how the toolkits are currently being evaluated.

After this webinar, the audience will be able to:
- Outline the co-design methodology used to develop clinician and patient online toolkits
- Describe the benefits and challenges of co-designing online toolkits
- Appreciate examples of novel methodologies for evaluating co-designed online toolkits

Post webinar—FIRESIDE CHAT: MEET THE RESEARCHERS (12:45 to 1:15 pm PT)
