Abstract: Knowledge management means how information communication technology systems and intellectual human capital is applied to support knowledge creation, as well as in the capturing, organization, access, and use of an organization’s intellectual capital. This paper investigates knowledge management problems in paediatric and paediatric neurology departments. The Grounded Theory approach is applied in data collection and analysis. The analysis revealed 8 thematic categories as follows: Patient, Physician, Patient Data, Nurse, ICT Systems, Patient Treatment, Diagnosis, and Learning and Experience. The categories are related to each other, and we found 13 higher levels of abstraction of statements. A conceptual framework of knowledge management categories, their relationships to each other, and propositions to our categories was developed by using the Grounded Theory approach. The relationships between the knowledge management categories enhance confidence in the validity of the categories a nd their relationships, and expand the emerging theory. (More)
