Library Knowledge Services (North)

HEALER Meeting


Knowledge for Healthcare has identified a need to embed library and knowledge specialists in NHS research, as providers of evidence and as research practitioners. One of the means of achieving this, is to create a research community of practice for health library and knowledge services practitioners.


As the first step towards creating a research community of practice it is proposed to investigate the possibility of reinvigorating the Health Information and Libraries for Evaluation and Research (HEALER) network. This network existed to:

“increase the production of good quality health information management research and to ensure that a co-ordinated approach to research into health information management is established so that it is clear what research is taking place and where the outputs are stored.”


The purpose of this meeting is to explore how best to move this aim forward. A more detailed agenda will be published prior to the meeting.
