The purpose of the Working Together project was to design, develop, deliver, and evaluate an online collaborative patient-centred practice (ICPCP) learning resource for healthcare teams to facilitate knowledge translation in long-term care. Lavis et al.'s (2003) framework was used to frame this study. Seventeen not for profit/charitable long-term care homes across Ontario, Canada participated in this project, involving 59 healthcare teams of pharmacists, physicians, nurses, and/or nurse practitioners. The Working Together project evaluated the effectiveness of knowledge translation by using the Demand-Driven Learning Model (DDLM) evaluation tool (MacDonald, Breithaupt, Stodel, Farres, & Gabriel, 2002) to assess learners' reactions to the learning resource. Data from quantitative pre-post surveys and qualitative interviews provided evidence that learners found using the resource to be a satisfactory learning experience, obtained new knowledge and skills regarding ICPCP, transferred knowledge to the workplace, and that their learning had a positive effect on the residents.
