The Trust & Policy workgroup will identify and address gaps in policy and issues (external or internal to the MCBK community) that would impact the quality of the data and knowledge, or its trustworthiness. The Trust & Policy workgroup will coordinate efforts to apply, evaluate, and build upon the trust framework to ensure that all stakeholders can participate as trusted and trustworthy agents. 

This will be an action-focused workgroup, concentrating initially on how we might define and convey transparency in the CBK ecosystem. This activity will include alignment with the MCBK vision, as stated in the Manifesto, of ensuring that the knowledge that has been gathered by our community properly reflects the best and most current evidence and science, which will, in turn, safeguard that the knowledge can be trusted for use to improve health and healthcare. This workgroup will also focus on technical systems and ensuring robust and unbiased methods to support:



The work of the Trust & Policy workgroup will be of interest to all stakeholders in the CBK ecosystem. MCBK stakeholders are the knowledge creators, curators, implementers, technology providers (electronic health records, decision support platforms), knowledge managers, clinical end-users, and consumers of CBK.
