Moving towards a new paradigm of creation, dissemination, and application of computer-interpretable medical knowledge

Paulo Novais, Tiago Oliveira, José Neves
2016 Progress in Artificial Intelligence  
Computer-Interpretable Guidelines (CIGs) exploit the scientific strength of evidence-based medicine to make recommendations available in Clinical Decision Support Systems.  ...  In this work we propose a web-based CIG framework to tackle some of these challenges and facilitate the integration of CIG-based advice not only in the everyday activities of health care professionals  ...  The work of Tiago Oliveira is supported by a FCT grant with the reference SFRH/BD/8-5291/ 2012.  ...

Hiding in plain sight: communication theory in implementation science

Milisa Manojlovich, Janet E Squires, Barbara Davies, Ian D Graham
2015 Implementation Science  
When conceptualized as a transformational process, the focus of communication moves to shared understanding and is grounded in human interactions and the way we go about constructing knowledge.  ...  Twenty-seven theories, models, or frameworks were identified; only Rogers' Diffusion of Innovations theory provides a definition of communication and includes both communication paradigms.  ...  JES holds a Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) New Investigator Award in Knowledge Translation. This paper was also supported in part by a CIHR grant to IDG (IOP 123548).  ...
