Knowvember: honing your skills

Now we’re at the end of Knowvember I thought it would be a good moment to remind you of all the great resources we have via the Learning Zone and Knowledge Management sections of this blog to help you hone your KM skills or revisit some of the basics. There are resources to help you with searching, synthesis and critical appraisal.

If you want to support your organisation and your colleagues in mobilising evidence and knowledge then remember the NHS Knowledge Mobilisation Framework Postcards and the Knowledge Mobilisation Framework programme are designed for a general audience plus we have the Evidence and Knowledge Self-assessment Tool.

If you haven’t already done so sign up for the CILIP Knowledge & Information Management Special Interest Group (K&IM) and for our new KM community of practice which is a lively discussion group.

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.
