Abstract

Transferring and mobilising knowledge from research into healthcare delivery is an enduring international challenge. Our aim was to explore how knowledge sources were used to advance healthcare practice. We analysed data from 28 interviews with senior representatives from Health Boards and an Academic Health Science Partnership in Wales. Although all recognised the need to keep up to date with research evidence, knowledge mobilisation activities were largely individually-driven, rather than embedded within organisations. Lack of time, limited management support, and coordination-failure between different professions (within/outside the organisation) hindered knowledge mobilisation. Enablers included a supportive infrastructure, good leadership and management at all levels. Alongside embedding knowledge mobilisation as an intrinsic part of everyone’s role, enhancing the knowledge broker role of identified individuals was recommended to provide visibility and structure.
