Be inspired, take part, share: Demystifying Knowledge Management

Following four successful regional face-to-face events the #Knowvember Project Team are busy again encouraging us to find out more about, and get involved in, knowledge management activities by hosting the next #ukmedlibs Twitter Chat.

“The central role of the information professional to mobilise, share and build knowledge networks across organisations”  – A key take home message from the Exeter #Knowvember event from Steven Walker, AWP

Conversations on the 16th October 2018, 8pm using #ukmedlibs Twitter chat will cover some key questions such as what do you think knowledge management is? What activities do you associate with knowledge management? What is the the value of knowledge management to your organisation?  Find out more about the chat and see all the questions that will be posed by visiting  the #ukmedlibs page.

If you haven’t yet pledged to do something related to KM for #Knowvember this is a great opportunity to be inspired and then make your pledge and post to the Padlet Pledge Wall  ahead of the month of November.

Can’t make the live chat?  We really hope you can all join in live on the day but for those unable to do so don’t despair as the full transcript will be made available for you to read afterwards – just having a think about the questions maybe enough to get you started on your #Knowvember18 pledges.

 

What are senior leaders in health care saying about library and knowledge services?

Interviews conducted at the #AMillionDecisions stand at NHSConfed18 have now been published on the CILIP website.

CILIP interviewed three senior health care leaders  – Dr Jonty Heaversedge, Chair of NHS Southwark CCG and Medical Director for Primary Care and Digital Transformation in London; Dr Nav Chana, Chair of the NAPC at the time of the interview and Rob Webster, CEO of South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership.

They each present personal reflections about using the expertise of librarians and knowledge specialists to encourage the use of best evidence and knowledge sharing to inform decisons and contribute to the transformation of health care services.

 

 

Knowledge Mobilisation Framework E-Learning is now LIVE

Following an official launch on Wednesday, the Knowledge Mobilisation Framework E-Learning is now live on the E-learning for Healthcare Platform.

Participants at the #Knowvember18 Training Event  in Exeter on the 5th September celebrating the launch of the updated Knowledge Mobilisation Framework E-Learning Modules and associated quick reference cards.

The modules introduce eleven knowledge mobilisation techniques that can be used by the wider health workforce  to learn before, during and after a piece of work to help to replicate good practice and avoid pitfalls.  Accompanying the modules are the updated Knowledge Mobilisation Framework Postcards.

Enrolling on the programme is quick and easy  and enables you to record your progress or alternatively you can choose to access freely as a guest.

A choosing tool has been developed to help you to select the right technique for a given situation or you can browse, working through all eleven modules or dipping in and out to suit your own circumstances.

Further publicity will take place throughout the autumn but for now we are calling on all Library and Knowledge Service Staff to promote the modules and use of the techniques locally within their organisations.

Feel free to use the flyer, which also features the How to Search the Literature Effectively: a Step by Step Guide to Success E-Learning modules, and share the link widely:
