Abstract

Issues and complexities that arise from the adoption of clinical knowledge management are explored within the context of delivering drugs to the lungs. The move towards electronic data capture and information retrieval is documented together with cross-organisational working and sharing of clinical records. Key drivers for change are identified and their effects on, for example, the patient-clinician relationship are investigated. Conclusions drawn indicate the crucial role that all stakeholders play to bring about effective and efficacious patient care.
