Methods for cardiac tissue engineering and application in experiments are core technologies developed at the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology in Göttingen. As is the case in many academic research laboratories data capture and documentation may be improved to latest methods of digital research. A comprehensive information system infrastructure is the foundation of further advances toward automation of lab processes. A data management system concept is proposed and prototypically deployed that enables traceability of assets within the lab and reproducibility of published assays and results. The prototype integrates existing electronic lab notebook, experiment result database, and a newly introduced research data management system by means of a custom developed portal and integration component. The architecture concept and developed integration tools explore connection of routine experimental work in a biomedical research lab to a universal infrastructure of data.

BACKGROUND: For large international research consortia, such as those funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme or the Innovative Medicines Initiative, good data coordination practices and tools are essential for the successful collection, organization and analysis of the resulting data. Research consortia are attempting ever more ambitious science to better understand disease, by leveraging technologies such as whole genome sequencing, proteomics, patient-derived biological models and computer-based systems biology simulations. RESULTS: The IMI eTRIKS consortium is charged with the task of developing an integrated knowledge management platform capable of supporting the complexity of the data generated by such research programmes. In this paper, using the example of the OncoTrack consortium, we describe a typical use case in translational medicine. The tranSMART knowledge management platform was implemented to support data from observational clinical cohorts, drug response data from cell culture models and drug response data from mouse xenograft tumour models. The high dimensional (omics) data from the molecular analyses of the corresponding biological materials were linked to these collections, so that users could browse and analyse these to derive candidate biomarkers. CONCLUSIONS: In all these steps, data mapping, linking and preparation are handled automatically by the tranSMART integration platform. Therefore, researchers without specialist data handling skills can focus directly on the scientific questions, without spending undue effort on processing the data and data integration, which are otherwise a burden and the most time-consuming part of translational research data analysis.

Los profesionales de la salud desempeñan un papel clave en la utilización racional y la regulación de los recursos sanitarios disponibles. En este artículo se presentan los fundamentos teóricos y las tendencias históricas que caracterizan la formación de posgrado de los gestores de ciencia, tecnología e innovación en salud para la gestión de la evaluación de tecnologías sanitarias. Asimismo, se define el concepto de formación de posgrado para la gestión de la evaluación de tecnologías sanitarias y se determinan las tres etapas que han caracterizado la evolución de este proceso, asociadas con las demandas que provienen del contexto histórico del desarrollo de esta actividad en las instituciones de salud. Se constató que no existe una propuesta teórico-metodológica que permita la apropiación, actualización y profundización en los conocimientos y las habilidades para la gestión de la evaluación de tecnologías sanitarias.

Health professionals play a key role in the rational use and regulation of the available health resources. The theoretical bases and the historical tendencies that characterize the postgraduate training of the science, technology and innovation in health agents for the management of the health technologies evaluation are presented in this work. The training postgraduate concept for the management of the health technologies evaluation is defined. The three stages which have characterized the course of this process, associated with the demands coming from the historical context of the development of this activity in the health institutions are determined. It was verified that a methodological theoretical proposal that allows the appropriation, updating and deepening in the knowledge and skills for the management of the health technologies evaluation doesn't exist.

Clinical trials form the backbone of evidence-based medicine. They are indispensable tools that make it possible to compare medical interventions or test medical devices for their efficacy and safety. Each study design exactly defines which data is to be collected. Case report forms (CRFs) are used to document the collected data. Preparing CRFs is complicating, time consuming and requires extensive knowledge in the fields of medicine, data management and statistics. In addition, there are no global standards for CRF design, which means that each research institution produces CRF data definitions at its own discretion. This hampers the exchange of data definitions among different research groups and variants of CRFs might be created for a similar study design. To address these problems, we developed a concept for a freely accessible portal in the form of a web application in which definitions for CRFs, variables and tables can be created. The created data definitions can be exported from the portal to be transferred to common electronic data capture systems (EDC) that can then generate CRFs using the definition. The overall objective of the project is to develop a data dictionary system that is used during the entire workflow of a study and that enables sharing and re-use of metadata.

Despite the increasing emphasis placed on knowledge management (KM) by the business sector and the common belief that creating, acquiring, sharing, and the use of knowledge enable individuals, teams, and communities to achieve superior performance, within the healthcare context, there is still room from improvements from both the theoretical and empirical perspectives. The purpose of this paper is to outline the contribution of KM process to the social- and economic-related outcomes in the context of health organizations. Given the theoretical approach on the considered concepts and their relationships, a conceptual model and seven research hypotheses were proposed. The empirical data were provided by a cross-sectional investigation including 459 medical and nonmedical employees of Romanian heath organizations, selected by a mixed method sampling procedure. A partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) approach was selected to provide information on the relevance and significance of the first- and second-order constructs, test the hypotheses, and conduct an importance performance matrix analysis. The PLS-SEM estimation showed positive and significant relationships between KM process and quality of healthcare, and organizational-level social and economic outcomes. Moreover, the research results provided evidences for the complex complementary mediation of the quality of healthcare and social-related outcomes on the relationships between KM process and social and economic outcomes. The theoretical and managerial implications are discussed and suggestions for future research are provided at the end of the paper.

Investing in a sustainable future has no alternative; the healthcare sector in developing countries has failed to achieve sustainability objectives. Knowledge management (KM) is a concrete application of sustainability in healthcare, as organizations (hospitals) that manage their knowledge assets will gain sustainable competitive advantage. Several organizations in developed countries are moving towards the adoption of knowledge management so that they can manage their knowledge well and improve their performance. Due to the effective implementation of KM in developed countries, developing countries are also considering adopting KM in their healthcare. In this study, an attempt has been made to identify the drivers of KM adoption in public and private hospitals of Pakistan. With the help of an extensive literature review and expert opinion, the drivers were identified and a hierarchical structure was developed. Nineteen drivers were identified and screened out by experts. The experts identified the contextual relationships between the drivers during a brainstorming session. The hierarchical model of the drivers for KM in the healthcare of Pakistan was eventually developed using interpretive structural modeling (ISM). The structure has 10 levels, in which "developed competitive advantage" formed the foundation of the structure and "job creation" and "improvement in the reputation of healthcare" formed the topmost level. The "Matrices d'Impacts Croises Multiplication Appliqué a un Classement" (MICMAC) analysis classified the drivers by categorizing them according to their driving and dependence powers. One driver is identified as autonomous, six drivers as dependent, seven drivers as linkage, and five drivers as independent. The analysis of KM drivers will provide a good understanding of the interdependence and interactions between them and support the effect adoption of KM in developing countries especially in Pakistan.

Canada regularly faces environmental public health (EPH) disasters. Given the importance of evidence-based, risk-informed decision-making, we aimed to critically assess the integration of EPH expertise and research into each phase of disaster management. In-depth interviews were conducted with 23 leaders in disaster management from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, and were complemented by other qualitative methods. Three topics were examined: governance, knowledge creation/translation, and related barriers/needs. Data were analyzed through a four-step content analysis. Six critical success factors emerged from the analysis: blending the best of traditional and modern approaches; fostering community engagement; cultivating relationships; investing in preparedness and recovery; putting knowledge into practice; and ensuring sufficient human and financial resources. Several promising knowledge-to-action strategies were also identified, including mentorship programs, communities of practice, advisory groups, systematized learning, and comprehensive repositories of tools and resources. There is no single roadmap to incorporate EPH expertise and research into disaster management. Our findings suggest that preparation for and management of EPH disaster risks requires effective long-term collaboration between science, policy, and EPH practitioners at all levels in order to facilitate coordinated and timely deployment of multi-sectoral/jurisdictional resources when and where they are most needed.

Conservative practices, such as manual registry have limited scope regarding preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative decision making, knowledge discovery, analytical techniques and knowledge integration into patient care. To maximize quality and value, perioperative care is changing through new technological developments. In this context, knowledge management practices will enable future transformation and enhancements in healthcare services. By performing a data science and knowledge management research in the perioperative department at Hospital Dr. Nélio Mendonça between 2013 and 2015, this paper describes its principal results. This study showed perioperative decision-making improvement by integrating data science tools on the perioperative electronic system (PES). Before the PES implementation only 1,2% of the nurses registered the preoperative visit and after 87,6% registered it. Regarding the patient features it was possible to assess anxiety and pain levels. A future conceptual model for perioperative decision support systems grounded on data science should be considered as a knowledge management tool.

BACKGROUND: The public health sector is moving toward adopting evidence-informed decision making into practice, but effort is still required to effectively develop capacity and promote contextual factors that advance and sustain it. This paper describes the impact of an organization-wide knowledge translation intervention delivered by knowledge brokers on evidence-informed decision making knowledge, skills and behaviour. METHODS: A case study design was implemented with the intervention and data collection tailored to the unique needs of each case (health department). A knowledge broker provided training workshops and mentored small groups through a seven step process of evidence-informed decision making. The intervention was delivered over 22 months; data related to evidence-informed decision making knowledge, skills and behaviour were collected at baseline and follow-up. Mixed effects regression models were developed to assess the impact of involvement in the intervention on the evidence-informed decision making outcomes. RESULTS: Data from a total of 606 health department staff were collected during baseline: 207 (33%) staff from Case A, 304 (28%) from Case B, and 95 (47%) from Case C. There were a total of 804 participants at follow-up: 258 (42%) from Case A, 391 from Case B (37%), and 155 (50%) from Case C. Statistically significant increases in knowledge and skills were observed overall, and in all three health departments. An increase in evidence-informed decision making behaviour was observed among those intensively involved in the intervention from all cases (statistically significant in Case A). The organizational characteristics of strategic priority, leadership, readiness, and choice of staff emerged as important factors in the change process. CONCLUSIONS: Knowledge brokering is a promising organizational knowledge translation intervention to support evidence-informed decision making. The intervention appeared to have the greatest impact on those who became actively engaged with the knowledge broker in the intervention. Active participation in face-to-face training activities with a knowledge broker, focused specifically on evidence-informed decision making skill development, led to the greatest impact on associated behaviours, knowledge, and skills. Several organizational factors emerged as integral to success of the knowledge translation intervention.

Knowledge is considered to be an important resource; it is the source of competitive advantage. However, if knowledge is managed well with Knowledge Management (KM), then it becomes a source for sustainable competitive advantage for organizations. If KM is implemented in an organization, it would improve the organizational competitiveness, performance, and productivity, and facilitate the efficient use of resources. Due to intense competition in the global market, many organizations are moving towards the adoption of KM. The healthcare sectors of many developed countries have moved towards the implementation of KM because it can improve the procuring of knowledge from ongoing activities by the effective use of data repositories. Developing countries have now realized the potential and benefits of KM adoption. Pakistan is one of the developing countries that have recently shown an inclination towards the adoption of KM in its healthcare sector to improve performance of its healthcare. This study was composed of two main research phases. Firstly, the enablers of KM were reviewed from earlier studies. Secondly, interpretive structural modeling (ISM) and MICMAC (Cross-Impact Matrix Multiplication Applied to Classification) techniques were used to show the interrelationships between KM enablers and driving and dependence power of each enabler. The application of ISM and MICMAC technique shows that policy incentive, long-term strategic planning, Information Technology (IT), and alignment of KM efforts with business strategy are the main enablers of KM adoption in the healthcare of Pakistan. Focusing on the identified enablers will help in the implementation of KM. Policy incentives can work as a catalyst to promote KM adoption in the healthcare of Pakistan.

La clasificación del conocimiento es fundamental para el entendimiento entre los investigadores y el avance de la ciencia. En el presente artículo se presenta una breve clasificación de los métodos de investigación clínica. Se recuerdan las ventajas que presenta el hecho de que los investigadores utilicen una misma nomenclatura: mejora la comunicación entre los investigadores, facilita la replicabilidad de los estudios y la búsqueda de artículos en las bases de datos, y ayuda a conocer los aspectos que pueden afectar a los diferentes modelos de investigación. Se agrupan en 4 grandes categorías: artículos epidemiológicos, artículos de metodología cualitativa, artículos de metodología mixta y artículos de revisión

The classification of knowledge is essential for understanding between researchers and the advancement of science. In this article a brief classification of clinical research methods is presented. The advantages that researchers use the same nomenclature are recalled, which enables improved communication among researchers, facilitates replication of studies and searches in databases, and helps to establish the aspects that can affect the different research models. They are grouped into four broad categories: epidemiological articles, articles of qualitative methodology, mixed methodology articles and review articles

The implementation of knowledge management (KM) in hospitals affects efficiency and outcomes of hospitals. However, few studies explored the implementation of KM in China. Twenty-two questions were designed concerning KM implementation status in over 50 hospitals. In order to understand the KM level and attitude to KM of the hospital's managers, a random sampling survey was conducted among 138 managers from 50 different scales of hospitals in 15 provinces of China. The survey showed that overall level of KM implementation in Chinese hospitals was still low and differed among different scales of hospitals (P<0.05, or P<0.01). In all the hospitals investigated, 63.8% did not implement KM yet, among which 46% even had not planned for that. 49.8% of the hospitals investigated had no training program about KM ever and the main source of hospital staff to get knowledge was internet. It suggested that hospital managers should make much more efforts to get to know and understand theories on KM, so that hospital KM could be promoted more rapidly.

Nowadays Brazil has a complex cancer care scenario. There are nearly 600.000 new cancer cases each year in Brazil, and the huge majority of patients have some contact with hospital services. However, long waiting queues for diagnostics and treatments have become common. One of the critical success factors in a cancer treatment is early diagnosis. The reduction of waiting time to start therapeutic procedures is one of the main issues for improvement of patient's quality of life and possibilities of cure. The objective of this work is to describe the development of a decision support system that improves the identification of access alternatives, appointment scheduling and employment of available resources. The Theory of Constraints was used to identify bottlenecks in patient treatment flow and a Discrete Events Simulation model was used to reduce patients' waiting time to start cancer treatment.

En un contexto actual, la información, el conocimiento y la innovación son factores indispensables para la sociedad, la economía y el desarrollo territorial y organizacional. Por tales razones, Cuba ha implementado desde el año 1995 un sistema de ciencia, tecnología e innovación con el propósito de lograr la vinculación entre la comunidad científica, la comunidad empresarial y el gobierno. Con la finalidad de identificar las capacidades y las limitaciones que tienen las estructuras del Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología y Medio Ambiente de Pinar del Río para gestionar el conocimiento, se realizó un diagnóstico utilizando el método científico histórico-lógico y el dialéctico para conocer los fundamentos históricos que existen sobre la gestión del conocimiento y su articulación en el sistema de ciencia, tecnología e innovación. Se aplicó un cuestionario para la recolección de los datos y el análisis documental que comprendió el estudio de textos de la especialidad y de las principales experiencias reportadas. Los principales resultados muestran que estas organizaciones no logran transferir con efectividad la información, el conocimiento y las innovaciones disponibles en la comunidad académica hacia la comunidad empresarial. Se propone un programa de acciones que contempla el diseño de un modelo de gestión del conocimiento, crear capacidades para el trabajo en red, renovar el conocimiento, articular la estrategia de comunicación social que permita una mayor visibilidad y fomentar el desarrollo del potencial científico en función de las prioridades del territorio(AU)

In the current context, information, knowledge and innovation are essential to society, the economy, and territorial and organizational development. It is for this reason that ever since the year 1995 Cuba has implemented a science, technology and innovation system to establish links between the scientific community, the business community and the government. A diagnostic study was conducted based on the scientific historical-logical and dialectical method with the purpose of becoming acquainted with the historical foundations of knowledge management and their relationship to the system of science, technology and innovation, as well as with the knowledge management capacities and limitations of structures from the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment in Pinar del Río. A questionnaire was applied to collect the data, and document analysis was performed which comprised the study of texts on the specialty and reports about the main lessons learned. Results show that these organizations do not manage to effectively transfer the information, knowledge and innovations available in the academic community to the business community. An action program is proposed which includes designing a knowledge management model, building networking capacities, renewing knowledge, articulating the social communication strategy so that it permits greater visibility, and fostering the development of the scientific potential in keeping with territorial priorities(AU)
