Key Findings of CDPP Annual Survey 2018
In August/September 2018, all members of the CDPP were invited to complete a short survey to evaluate the impact of the CDPP network. The KT Team created an infographic of the key findings of the annual survey 2018 including some points to be aware of in 2019. Almost all researchers and trainees mentioned that the KT consultation service is of value for the CDPP network. However, the majority (81%) of the researchers and trainees have not yet contacted CDPP’s Knowledge Translation (KT) Support Service (KT Shoppe).
IMPORTANT REMINDER: When a project is nearing completion it is time to contact the KT Shoppe at firstname.lastname@example.org for next steps in the KT process.

The CDPP Sport and Exercise Team is excited to provide the Ability Toolkit: A Resource for Parents of Children and Youth with a Disability, a parent-centered resource aimed to help children of all abilities meet the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guideline recommendations.
Developed in partnership with the CDPP Sport and Exercise Team, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP), ParticipACTION, Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research (HALO) CHEO, and stakeholders including parents of children with a disability, the toolkit offers information regarding the content of the guidelines, provides examples of activity modifications, and details additional community resources that may be helpful to parents.
The Mobility Device Training Catalogue: Online Resources for Canadians Living with Disabilities is just about ready to share with CDPP members and the broader community. The catalogue, created by members of the Mobility Team, provides a summary with weblinks to existing training resources for common mobility aids including walking aids, wheelchairs, and scooters. The resource catalogue will provide Canadians with quick access to quality information about how to use mobility devices.
