This paper describes the implementation of a suite of Electronic Clinical Health Knowledge Management Systems in a New Zealand District Health Board. The implementation team utilized an action research framework, actively reflecting on each sub-stage of the project, and then utilising key learnings from these reflections, in combination with available related literature, to plan for the next implementation stage. A brief overview of key implementation issues/learning and ethical challenges will be presented. The paper will highlight the importance of a systemic shared culture that 'Respects and Protects' Health Knowledge. The Use of I-Mail as a reflection tool, and perceived links between Action Research and individual and group psychological processes will also be discussed.
