Knowvember

During the month of November, librarians and knowledge specialists showcase the many ways they mobilise evidence and knowledge enabling people to learn before, during and after everything they do so that good practice can be replicated and pitfalls are avoided.

It is an opportunity to encourage more people working in the NHS to apply and use evidence, build know-how, continue to learn and drive innovation to implement successful change, transform services and improve the quality of care.

Background

The first showcase was run in 2018.  Two project teams ran a series of four regional events in September  for  health librarians and knowledge specialists to meet face to face with an aim to encourage the sharing of knowledge and ideas around knowledge management and generate interest in a campaign to be run in November.  A blog post was promoted on a dedicated Twitter account and a Twitter chat held in October.  Branding was created.  A pledge wall was established and librarians and knowledge specialists were invited to pledge to carry out some form of knowledge management activity during the month of November.  During the month a knowledge management community of practice mailing list was established.  Find out more about Knowvember18
