origins of chains
Origins of CHAINs
  • lack of map of people involved in research, evidence based practice (EBP), & related education/training
  • channel of communication with and between interested people researchers, clinicians, managers, teachers +++
purposes of c h a i n
Purposes of C.H.A.I.N.
  • show who is doing what
  • facilitate multi-professional and inter-organisational collaboration
  • remove barriers between research and practice - potential benefits for research and implementation
the c h a i n directory
The C.H.A.I.N. Directory...
  • internet access (password protected)
  • a freeresource for allmembers
  • not available in libraries or intranets
  • notlike a phone directory
  • notlike an e-mail discussion group
  • definitely not like Medline or Cochrane
targeted messages
Targeted messages
  • members’ calls for help - evidence sought
  • calls for help - advice/examples/policies sought
  • calls for help - collaborators sought
  • offers of bursaries, studentships, awards etc.
  • invitations to participate in relevant events
  • targeted dissemination of research evidence
  • research calls/funding opportunities
chains and their members
CHAINs and their members...
  • motivated & responsive to messages
  • like to broadcast, but appreciate targeting
  • pleased with searches and responses to messages
  • reach deep into ‘the pyramid’ – advantage of e-mail
  • can be used as a regional or local (SHA) tool to manage contacts and information and to enable targeted multiple e-mailings
  • Give access to an unparalleled pool of tacit knowledge
nusu chains currently
NUSU CHAINs currently...
  • now 2 CHAINs: R&D/EBP and WBL
  • evaluation of R&D/EBP CHAIN (c1) BMJ 12/5/04
  • R&D/EBP (c1) 3,000+ members (origins 1997)
  • WBL (c2) 400+ members (launched Apr 2004)
  • hundreds of targeted messages sent/received
  • physical ‘learning & sharing’ events successful linkage, overlap and x-cutting sub-groups
  • Common values: voluntary, multi-professional & free
  • further NHSU CHAINs to be established
new chains must
New CHAINs must:
  • have an appropriate range of focus
  • be seeking functions which can be met by a CHAIN
  • fit with the underpinning principles of CHAINs
  • identify key information for joining form
  • resource database development
  • demonstrate commitment to facilitate – individual(s) with knowledge of the subject (min 1-2 days/week)
  • engage with the wider family of CHAINs
  • have a collaborative relationship with NHSU
nhsu chains team will
NHSU CHAINs team will:
  • support development of a joining form
  • oversee database development
  • train the facilitator in searching etc.
  • support recruitment of members
  • manage data input and maintenance
  • send targeted messages (in collaboration with facilitator)
  • provide help to members with searching etc.
  • demonstrate CHAIN at conferences, meetings etc.
