Aims & objectives

The main aim of this project was to develop a practical framework to help people working in health and social care to share their practice-based knowledge with one another.

There were two closely aligned parts to the project:

  1. A practical part which focused on actively helping people working in health and social care to share knowledge with each other in order to improve integrated working
  2. A research part which focused on observing and understanding the key processes that are involved in sharing practice-based knowledge

The project was designed to address three inter-related questions:

  • How can practice-based knowledge sharing be facilitated between people working in health and social care?
  • What are the key processes involved in sharing practice-based knowledge across health and social care boundaries?
  • What should a practice-based knowledge sharing framework look like?
