Professional Summary & Appointments

Melanie Barwick, PhD, CPsych is a Senior Scientist in the Child Evaluative Sciences Program of the Research Institute at SickKids (The Hospital for Sick Children). She is affiliated with the SickKids’ Learning Institute where she conducts professional development in knowledge translation (dissemination and implementation), and with the SickKids Centre for Global Child Health, as a scientist and member of the leadership.

At the University of Toronto, she is Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, and Status Only Professor in the Dalla Lana School of Public Health and the Institute for Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation. She is a Visiting Professor at the University of Huddersfield, in the None in Three Research Centre working to eradicate gender-based violence.

She is an Executive Board Member for Children’s Mental Health Ontario, Associate Editor for the journal, Evidence & Policy and on the Editorial Board for Implementation Research and Practice.  Dr Barwick consults to government and service providers in the child and youth mental health, health and education sectors, and extends her impact via a varied social media presence.

Dr. Barwick is an internationally recognized expert in implementation science and knowledge translation, and has a program of research that spans health, mental health, education, and global health sectors. Her research aims to improve the implementation of evidence into practice and to broaden the reach of evidence more generally to support decision making, policy, knowledge and awareness. She brings practical field experience in implementation, as lead technical assistance supporting outcome measurement for 120 Ontario CYMH provider organizations (2000-2015). Her research includes development and evaluation of effectiveness and implementation of e-health innovations, and the development of new resources to support dissemination and implementation.

She developed and provides professional development in knowledge translation internationally through the Scientist Knowledge Translation Training™ (for researchers) and the Knowledge Translation Professional Certificate™ (for KT practitioners) (http://tinyurl.com/p2p5du6); the latter has been recognized as a Leading Practice by Accreditation Canada and has over 300 graduates worldwide (Brazil, Ireland, Canada, Australia, Germany, United States, and the United Arab Emirates). Since 2004, SKTT has trained over 3000 individuals internationally and is the go-to KT training resource for many Canadian health funders and organizations.
