Wikis and Collaborative Writing Applications in Health Care
Craig Kuziemsky, professor at the Telfer School of Management, is part of a research team led by Dr. Patrick Archambault, Associate professor, Department of Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine at the Université Laval. The team received a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research through the Knowledge Synthesis Grant Program for their project Wikis and Collaborative Writing Applications in Health Care: A Scoping Review.
The objective is to do a scoping review that will map the literature on the use of Wikis and other collaborative writing applications in healthcare in order to synthesize the applications’ positive and negative impacts. The exercise seeks to inventory the barriers and facilitators that affect how they influence the delivery of healthcare.
