Abstract

Background: The present study aimed to analyze the situation of knowledge management among the faculty members in the four components, including creation, linking, organization and storage, and application. Methods: This is a survey research and the results are presented descriptively and analytically. The study tool was a questionnaire of knowledge management with 84 questions (creation of knowledge, linking and sharing of knowledge, organization and storage of knowledge and application of knowledge) in Likert scale. The reliability and validity were 0.80 and CVI=0.93, respectively. The data were analyzed by SPSS 16.Results: The results of the study showed that the average scores of the four components of the faculty members were as follows: creation of knowledge (33±7.09), linking of knowledge (67±15.17), organization and storage of knowledge (47±9.33), and application of knowledge (28±6). Analyzing the relationship between knowledge management and its components with academic degree and the background of the results, it was shown that there is statistically significant difference in the component of the application of knowledge (p>0.05).Conclusions: The status of the faculty members of Birjand University of Medical Sciences was not desirable in the components of linking knowledge, and organization and storage of knowledge. Consequently, it seems essential to take special measures in order to empower team-working and motivate the teachers to share knowledge, such as development of group evaluation processes, group incentive programs and teaching of organization and storage of knowledge. Â
