An exploratory study of knowledge brokering in hospital settings: facilitating knowledge sharing and learning for patient safety?

Waring J, Currie G, Crompton A, et al. Social science & medicine (1982). 2013;98:79-86.

This study explores the different ways that risk managers, risk officers, clinical leaders, and professional executives promote learning about patient safety in their organizations. The findings suggest that hybrid clinical-managers may best contribute to knowledge sharing due to their ability to bridge practice-level staff and organizational leaders.
