Evidence and knowledge assessment tool

A simple framework has been developed to help health organisations to assess opportunities to make better use of knowledge as an asset. Often referred to as the ‘Board Tool’ this framework enables a dialogue between a representative of a library and knowledge service and senior executives in a health organisation to see how they are currently using external evidence and organisational knowledge and to devise an action plan to help the organisation develop best practice with targeted support.

The tool consists of 4 sections to assess

Completing the tool will enable you to:

  • assess what is working well and what more could be done
  • spot practical initiatives on which librarians and knowledge specialists can lead to help you meet your objectives
  • set priorities for better mobilising evidence and organisational knowledge
  • contact the library to find out more and arrange an appointment for a librarian to start working with your team
