The Knowledge Management (KM) Team at USU's CGHE has been invited to present during the breakout track focused on Medical Support to Irregular Warfare (MSIW). The CGHE KM team will present the scientific background and implementation science directing the development of a robust user-centered KM program that is postured to meet the information and knowledge requirements of all GHE stakeholders, including special operations forces (SOF) operators and planners. More specifically, the podium presentation will share how the team developed, rapidly prototyped piloted, and implemented its partner medical capabilities platform MEDICAL OPTIONS (Medical Evaluations Describing Interoperability Capability Assessment Levels of Partner Trauma Institutions or Non-Battle Injury Services), how MEDICAL OPTIONS is a part of a larger DoD KM program, and how the special operations community, as a key stakeholder, can participate to enhancing and sustaining this needed capability.
