Dr Roman Kislov conducts qualitative research on the processes and practices of knowledge mobilisation, with a particular interest in communities of practice, intermediary roles, organisational learning and implementation of change. His work crosses disciplinary boundaries between organisation studies, public administration and health services research.
Roman is currently leading a longitudinal study into the development of knowledge mobilisation strategies over time and a multiple case study of research co-production in multiprofessional project teams, which are both funded by the National Institute for Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (NIHR CLAHRC) Greater Manchester—a partnership between the University of Manchester and local providers of health services. In 2016-2017, he was a country lead investigator on the FLAME (‘Facilitators and Leaders Actively Mobilising Evidence’) project—an international study of nursing facilitation and leadership across four countries (Australia, Canada, Sweden and the UK).
Roman is an Adjunct Visiting Fellow at AusHSI (Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation), Queensland University of Technology. He chairs the organising committee of the 12th Organisational Behaviour in Health Care (OBHC) Conference to be held in Manchester on 15-17 April 2020.
Prior to joining academia, Roman worked as a doctor for a gold mining company in Central Asia, combining clinical work with a managerial post. He holds an MSc in Healthcare Management and a PhD in Business and Management (both from Manchester Business School).
Roman’s work has recently appeared in Public Administration Review, Organization Studies, Public Administration, Implementation Science and BMJ Quality and Safety.
