Abstract

Healthcare is a knowledge industry evidenced by substantial resources invested in staff development and the production of research evidence. This article examines knowledge management within the NHS in terms of explicit knowledge and tacit knowledge. It concludes that whilst progress with explicit knowledge is significant management of tacit knowledge is far less developed.
