Project Details

Description

The primary aim is to facilitate sustainable communication and sharing of informal and actionable knowledge within the HDR UK Better Care community, by:
•Engaging Better Care Learning Health System (LHS) project teams to understand their knowledge and learning needs, and the incentives and cultural context in which they operate
•Identifying suitable technical and social tools (including knowledge mobilisation / communities of practice models), social media or other options for knowledge sharing, and how to motivate use
•Co-designing with staff a sustainable, effective HDR UK Learning Collaborative using the selected tools and methods, including determining what level of standardisation is appropriate
•Supporting and incentivising staff to participate in the Collaborative to share LHS techniques, fragments of analytical codes, clinical code sets, informal learnings etc.

In addition, we will also develop a demonstrator of communication and sharing of clinical knowledge from the Better Care programme to clinicians and patients outside these LHS, by:
•Mapping the types of clinical knowledge that Better Care projects and LHS generate
•Working with one or more target organisations for disseminating this knowledge (eg. GP template developers, NICE)
•Drawing upon international standards for clinical knowledge representation and decision support
•Planning and running a clinical knowledge Hackday to populate at least one knowledge sharing platform with sample Better Care knowledge as a prototype for an HDR UK Outputs Library
•Engaging with external partners to facilitate use of this library

Dr Philip Scott is co-director of the project with Prof Jeremy Wyatt.
