Personally been involved in clinical knowledge management for 15 years. This started as a desire to ensure clinicians have access to the best available evidence with which to base their clinical decisions on. This initially manifested itself as a clinical Q&A service. Since then the interests have widen but it’s still focussed on clinician’s information needs.
