Abstract

Basing treatment, policy and planning decisions on the best available research knowledge remains a central principle in modern healthcare around the world, yet many health professionals find acquiring and managing published research knowledge challenging. This article reports on a Soft Systems Methodology based collaborative action research initiative with a specialist mental health service from the UK’s National Health Service. Its objective was to design and implement improvements to their knowledge acquisition and management activities in order to facilitate sustained and effective evidence based practices. It reports on both the factors found to impede effective research knowledge acquisition and management and reports on the development of more integrated socio-technical knowledge management processes designed to improve the situation.
