I thought I'd share the citation to this short commentary that was just published:
Creating a more efficient healthcare knowledge market: using communities of practice to create checklists.
Lashoher A, Pronovost P. Qual Saf Health Care. 2010 Dec;19(6):471-2.
What I like about this is it provides a nice example of why "knowledge" can be more helpful and actionable that "information" -- in this case guidelines -- and the usefulness of a knowledge sharing mechanims (ie CoP) to support better care and tools to make the care as reliable as possible (checklists).
Let me know what you think!
