About this product
- DescriptionThe research-practice gap is a persistent problem in healthcare - significant new kwledge is created but only some of it is shared and even less is used. As a consequence, many invative ideas fail to change practice in healthcare settings. Academics, practitioners, and governments alike, agree that finding new ways of mobilizing kwledge is critical to reducing this gap. Yet kwledge mobilization is especially difficult in such a complex setting. This is because kwledge is essentially social and contextual in its very nature. Straightforward, linear 'transfer' models fail to work. This book provides an alternative 'kwledge mobilization' view, that examines in detail how kwledge is circulated and negotiated among those involved in healthcare, and how it is used to actually transform practice. Building on the collective scholarship of some of the most prominent academics in this area, the chapters explore the dynamics of kwledge mobilization, focusing on the challenges these pose for organization and management and how these challenges can be overcome.
