>The learning journey continues…

As I begin training a new cohort of healthcare managers in a London hospital, I have already discovered a wealth of expertise and motivation amongst them.

All too often, the media would have us believe that there are too many managers in the health service (maybe at senior level???), they are too expensive (salaries are not as high as people would imagine) and there is too much bureaucracy (the last point is probably true).

However, having already completed the first group just last month, I was witness to a wonderful array of practical, low or no-cost ideas from them about how to improve things for the end user i.e. THE PATIENT.

I have no doubt, this new group will be just as motivated.

What a shame that the media overlooks this fact – but then that wouldn’t sell papers would it?

The learning journey continues…

I find myself spending more and more time online taking part in many different discussion boards and posting all around the world. This can take hours and hours, sitting in my kitchen office at home, whilst ‘family’ life goes on around me.

I enjoy meeting people and so what better way to travel around the world without leaving my home and family commitments, however, many of the people I meet when teaching or presenting have never tried this before.

KnowledgeBoard (just one of the discussion boards that I use) is a European KM Forum that has a wealth of exciting and thought-provoking discussions about Knowledge Management. Don’t whatever you do be put off by some of the language, there are some passionate people who post there, but look beneath this and there is much to learn.
