In order to achieve the main aim of this research project, which is to identify KS barriers between TCM and WM healthcare professionals in the Chinese healthcare environment, it is fundamental to review existing KS and KM literature relating to the healthcare environment. This exercise of literature review has three main purposes: (1) to enhance theoretical sensitivity, which is crucial to the collection and analysis of data and the conceptualisation of research findings; (2) to locate appropriate theoretical frameworks to guide the remaining research stages; (3) to draw indications for the selection of research methodology and for the research design.
