Translocational / translational knowledge transfer

Playing Well with Others: “Translocational Research” in Patient Safety
by Robert M. Wachter, MD

NIH Launches Major Program to Transform Clinical and Translational ScienceOctober 12, 2005. Press Release - National Institutes of Health (NIH). Additional information.

I beleive these ideas present an opportunity for a unique positioning of the impact of knowledge management (KM) in scientific innovation. If we look at the transfer of knowledge and information as a way to diffuse and support creative, "outside the box" thinking to support patient safety and advances in the other sciences, what sort of a strategic positioning for KM does that require? Articulating this may provide our field with opportunities to have a more front and center role in the NIH program that follows Wachter's commentary.
