15 Credits AUTUMN



Aims/Description: Knowledge mobilisation is a generic term used for a number of activities that involve the use, production and knowledge management. Although the need for effective implementation of evidence-based interventions has been well documented, little is understood about how this is best achieved. The module will equip students with an understanding of the practical and theoretical challenges of mobilising knowledge and its consequences for healthcare delivery focused on problem solving and critical thinking. The focus will be on the distinction between how to mobilize (do) and how to understand (study) knowledge to action, through a critical appraisal of both approaches.
