Sample text

The improvement of patient services is impeded by serious disconnections between the worlds of medical research and health practices (Lomas 2007). Therefore, Lomas (2007) and Andrew et al. (2001) emphasise that it is extremely important to connect the two worlds by establishing KS strategies. Finally, KS is critical in ensuring patient safety by preventing medical errors from being repeated. De Brún (2007) claims that healthcare organisations need to establish KS strategies and processes to store and share lessons and experiences learnt from previous errors.

Lee (2001) proposes that KS is the activity of transferring or disseminating both explicit and tacit knowledge between people, groups, or organisations. Moreover, Al-Hawamdeh (2003) defines KS in more detail: Knowledge sharing, in its broadest sense, refers to the communication of all types of knowledge, which includes explicit knowledge or information, the ‘know-how’ and ‘know‘who’ which are types of knowledge that can be documented and captured as information, and tacit knowledge in the form of skills and competencies.

Moreover, there are no conceptual frameworks that can be evaluated as sufficient to be adopted as the theoretical framework to guide the remaining research stages. In this case, instead of deductively finding and testing an existing theory in the research context, it is more appropriate to inductively develop a theory, which is explainable and applicable to the KS problem in Chinese healthcare organisations. Moreover, as informed by the literature review, it is very difficult to form an indepth and concrete theoretical foundation and to establish a theoretical framework to guide data collection and analysis and theory development in the remainder of the research.
