Knowledge Mobilization Specialist, Alliance for Healthier Communities

Toronto
DEADLINE: 2 August
The Knowledge Mobilization (KM) Specialist will be based at the Alliance and be part of the Alliance Research and Evaluation team. The primary project that the KM Specialist will work on is the National Safer Supply Community of Practice (NSS-CoP), an initiative led by the London InterCommunity Health Centre (LIHC) in partnership with the Alliance and the Canadian Association of People who Use Drugs (CAPUD). The KM Specialist will report to the Director, Research and Evaluation (Alliance) and the Program Manager (LIHC). The NSS-CoP’s objective is to build capacity for safer supply prescribing as one approach on a continuum of care to support people who use drugs who are at risk of overdose and other harms related to the highly contaminated illegal drug supply. The KM Specialist will be instrumental in building this community of practice, alongside team members from LIHC and CAPUD, and engaging with stakeholders, including current or former people who use drugs, from across Canada and from across sectors (e.g., community health, regulatory colleges, pharmacy, hospitals, social services).
