CONTACT, HELP, ADVICE AND INFORMATION NETWORKS

Presentation/demonstration 23.9.04


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


C h a i n members main interests specialties

C.H.A.I.N. members’ main interests / specialties*

*diagram as at May 2002, N=2730


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.
