Value and Impact Task and Finish Group Update

Since our last blog in September, the group has done some further analysis of results of the survey of current use of the Impact Toolkit by the NHS library and knowledge workforce.  This is necessary preparation for the approaching task of refreshing the toolkit.

Question 9 of the survey asked staff to “suggest useful changes or additions to the Impact Toolkit”. The responses to this question are of particular value in identifying what NHS library staff are expecting from the revised toolkit.  Some of the recurrent themes are captured in the word cloud below (Click on the word cloud to see it more clearly!):


The group are scheduled to meet on 23rd November to tackle some more practical work around creating and including further resources in the Impact Toolkit.  The target date for completion of the toolkit refresh is the end of March 2016.
