Knowvember19 – How to get involved.

Our preparations are underway to showcase all the work you are doing to mobilise evidence and knowledge in your organisations.  Building upon the success of Knowvember18 and your helpful feedback we are asking you to share with your organisations the work you have been doing throughout the year, or have planned for next year,  relating to mobilising evidence and knowledge. 

Perhaps you are setting up a repository, are managing website content, are running randomised coffee trials or have shared the NHS Knowledge Mobilisation Framework e-learning and postcards with some colleagues – now is your time to collectively shout about this work.

How you can get involved?

  • Tell us about what you have been up to since Knowvember18 – take 2 minutes to Leave a Comment at the end of this post and share your activities – what has worked and what could have been better –all replies received before the 30th October will be entered into a draw to win a copy of the recently published KM Cookbook and be featured during November. 
  • If you are on social media then share what you have been doing using #Knowvember19
  • Share your lessons learnt about making time for KM by sending a message to the Community of Practice for Knowledge Management
  • Take part in the Twitter #ukmedlibs chat on the 19th November at 12:30
  • Add your story to the KM story bank by completing and submitting the template here
  • Use the self assessment tool with your team to see how well you are using evidence and knowledge as a team
  • Gather an impact case study about your knowledge mobilisation activities and send to the national database
  • Watch the weekly pre-recorded webinars featuring an aspect of knowledge mobilisation throughout November
  • Plan some mobilising evidence and knowledge activities to run throughout 2020 and tell us about them either on Twitter or on the Community of Practice Discussion List

Where can I get more ideas or information?

There are loads of ideas and examples on the Knowledge Management Toolkit and you can see what people did in Knowvember18 by looking at the wall of pledges.  You can use the Community of Practice to share ideas and ask for help.  If you have not yet had a chance to use the NHS Knowledge Mobilisation Framework  e-learning then this is a great time to pay a visit.  This suite of 11 E-Learning modules featuring each technique is free to access via the e-learning for healthcare platform.  Each module briefly introduces each technique – highlighting benefits, providing  a quick overview of how to do the technique and inviting participants to have a go either by completing a short activity or by planning use of the technique in a real life situation.  There are additional resources that can be found linked from the e-learning and on the Learning Zone hosted on the Knowledge for Healthcare Blog.

Further information about Knowvember is available on the Knowledge for Healthcare Blog Page.

  1. Here at Bournemouth we have just organised our fourth Randomised Coffee Trial for all staff. These RCT’s enable staff to share knowledge and experiences with their randomised match.
    We give participants 6 weeks to meet and follow up after this time with an online survey. Feedback received has been very positive with previous participants eager to participate in subsequent rounds.
    This month we have been asked to provide assistance with organising RCTs specifically for the Allied Health Professionals as part of the AHP National Day, and we will look forward to following up with this group of staff in a few weeks.

  2. Twice this year here in Bath we have run a book group in conjunction with our palliative care / end of life team.

    The first was during Dying Matters Week when we discussed “Being Mortal” by Atul Gawande . The second was by Kathryn Mannix when we considered “With the End in Mind”.

    On both occasions the discussions held have been a great way for staff to share knowledge, practice and experiences around palliative and end of life care.

  3. Here in Bath we undertook an after action review.

    A new process had been put in place for F1 doctors to complete their statutory / mandatory training via eLearning on their second and third days with the Trust. After the sessions we got together as a team to review what went well, what didn’t go so well & how we could avoid that next year and any ideas for next year.

    All the Library team found this a really useful exercise.
