In accordance with our ongoing commitment to improving caregiving and professional development among our co-workers, the Sisters Hospitallers promote research, development, training, and teaching activities.
The term knowledge management encompasses a set of tasks and actions undertaken at the Institution (research, development, innovation, etc.) aimed at generating new knowledge, incorporating existing knowledge, and disseminating that knowledge across the organisation to ensure its application in day-to-day healthcare and educational practice.
In addition to contributing to the advancement of knowledge, research allows us to adopt an attitude of permanent scientific curiosity in our healthcare and educational activity, making it a necessity for our centres and resources in their pursuit of excellence. The attention we provide those we serve is the matrix from which stems the continuous training and research requirements that improve our actions.
Scientific activity at our centres is based on an ethical commitment to scientific advancement and the improvement of care quality.
At our Institution, knowledge management requires the establishment and consolidation of specific structures that support and promote research, teaching, training, development and innovation.
