Article
This paper examines the effectiveness of human factors initiatives and addresses some difficulties reported in calculating the value of such interventions. Company representatives and researchers applied a novel probabilistic assessment tool to estimate the financial impact of two macro-ergonomic projects. Key benefits of the company intranet proje...

Objectives: To explore the perspectives of healthcare professionals and commissioners working with a stroke Early Supported Discharge service in relation to: (1) the factors that facilitate or impede the implementation of the service, and (2) the impact of the service. Design: Cross-sectional qualitative study using semi-structured interviews. Da...
Article
Purpose – The purpose of this research is to present the empirical findings from a case study in knowledge sharing with the aim of understanding knowledge sharing in a strategic context through a socio-technical approach. Design/methodology/approach – Knowledge sharing facilitators and barriers were examined in a UK owned multinational engineering...
Article
Research evidence supporting Early Supported Discharge (ESD) services has been summarized in a Cochrane Systematic Review. Trials have shown that ESD can reduce long-term dependency and admission to institutional care and reduce the length of hospital stay. No adverse impact on the mood or well-being of patients or carers has been reported. With th...
Article
A qualitative study of shift handover practice and function from a socio-technical perspective Background. Shift handover plays a pivotal role in the continuity of patient care in 24-hour nursing contexts. The critical nature of this communication system is recognized within the literature and by the nursing profession; however, there are few in-de...
Article
Background and objectives: All health and social care professionals learn on the job through both formal and informal learning processes, which contributes to continuous professional development (CPD). This study explored workplace learning in General Practices, specifically looking at the role of informal learning and the workplace practices that...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes a methodology which attempts to address the barriers to the development of successful educational design research through a process which identifies gaps in current practices and devises innovations to target them. Educational design research assumes an ambitious position: a dual commitment to understand and contribute to both t...
Article
Full-text available
Social learning networks enable the sharing, transfer and enhancement of knowledge in the workplace that builds the ground to exchange informal learning practices. In this work, three healthcare networks are studied in order to understand how to enable the building, maintaining and activation of new contacts at work and the exchange of knowledge be...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper explores how informal learning can be assessed in the work environment which bears difficulties, as informal learning is largely invisible and people lack awareness of informal learning. We perform an exploratory case study involving 24 healthcare professionals representing small and medium sized enterprises (SME) in six healthcare netwo...

EN: In 2015, two conferences are brought together under the umbrella of „knowledge communities“ with complementary thematic priorities. While the GeNeMe deals with organisational and technical perspectives in the context of Virtual Enterprises, Communities & Social Networks, the ProWM provides a broad and inclusive overview of the organisational, c...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Sensemaking at the workplace and in educational contexts has been extensively studied for decades. Interestingly, making sense out of the own wealth of learning experiences at the workplace has been widely ignored. To tackle this issue, we have implemented a novel sensemaking interface for healthcare professionals to support learning at the workpla...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Driven by ever shorter cycles of innovation, organizations and individuals nowadays have to acquire, understand and apply new knowledge in shorter periods of time [1]. Much of this rapid learning appears to be achieved by workers learning on the job and from colleagues – informal learning rather than learning from traditional, curriculum-based trai...
Article
Full-text available
Objective: To investigate patients' and carers' experiences of Early Supported Discharge services and inform future Early Supported Discharge service development and provision. Design and subjects: Semi-structured interviews were completed with 27 stroke patients and 15 carers in the Nottinghamshire region who met evidence-based Early Supported...
Article
Full-text available
A Cochrane systematic review showed that Early Supported Discharge (ESD) following a stroke is both a safe and cost-effective alternative to continued in-patient management. Currently it is unclear whether the health and cost benefits established in the research literature still apply when ESD services are implemented in practice. Our study aims to...
Article
Full-text available
A Cochrane systematic review demonstrated that ESD services can reduce long-term dependency and admission to institutional care as well as reducing the length of hospital stay. No adverse impact on the mood or well-being of patients or carers was reported. This ongoing study aims to facilitate and evaluate the successful implementation of Stroke Ea...
Article
Full-text available
Our recent research, using expert consensus with trialists who had contributed to the Cochrane systematic review, has helped to establish key components of effective Stroke Early Supported Discharge (ESD) services. One essential element is that the ESD multidisciplinary team should have access to specialist stroke knowledge. However, how this is or...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents a future vision for the working practices of designers within a manufacturing organisation. By its very nature the engineering design environment is highly distributed in nature and is characterised by a large number of information sources, which together with the designers forms a complex sociotechnical system. In discussions w...
Conference Paper
This paper describes the first phase of a study of knowledge management in design from a multi-disciplinary perspective, using a socio-technical approach. The prime objective is to understand the human, social, organisational and technological aspects of current knowledge capture, sharing and reuse activities. Designers from a range of contexts, ac...

Detailed but unobtrusive capture of decisions taken in projects, their supporting rationales and dependencies, to the immediate benefit of the current project team as well as those in the future.
Project
Learning Layers was a 4 year (November 2012 – October 2016), large-scale research project co-funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme as part of the Technology Enhanced Learning call. The focus of the Learning Layers research was on understanding learning at the workplace and developing a set of modular and flexible technologies for supporting this workplace learning in networks of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The research took place in two sectors: health care in the UK and building and construction in Germany. The health care context focused on informal learning in primary care (specifically GP practices) and working closely with local GP practices, Clinical Commissioning Groups and other healthcare networks. The project explored how learning technology could support healthcare professionals’ informal learning and improve practice. It involved: 1. Building an understanding of the current learning practices in the GP practices. 2. Supporting the co-design of the technology tools 3. Piloting and evaluation of these tools in healthcare teams and networks. The project officially ended in December 2016 and our results website can be found at http://results.learning-layers.eu. However, some of collaborations and work is continuing and further updates and publications will be posted both here and on the results website.
