During his fellowship, Ahmad focused on developing his understanding of the role of knowledge translation (KT) practices in facilitating the uptake of health systems evidence by policymakers at both regional and national levels. In particular, Ahmad was involved in the evidence synthesis and planning for two stakeholder dialogues, on enhancing patient transitions from treatment in regional cancer centers and on addressing health and emerging global issues in Canada. As part of his fellowship, Ahmad completed an internship at the World Health Organization in the Department of Knowledge Management and Sharing, where he participated in research on the role of KT strategies in facilitating the uptake of implementation research by policymakers in low- and middle-income countries. This work was published in the journal of Health Research Policy and Systems. Ahmad is now completing his medical education at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University. He hopes to use the KT knowledge and skills acquired during his fellowship to aid in current efforts to bridge gaps between evidence and medical practice.
