Perceptions of knowledge transfer of foreign African doctors practicing in South African provincial hospitals.
The study examined the factors affecting the African foreign doctors' perception of knowledge transfer with special reference to South African provincial hospitals. The influence of three organisational factors (Interpersonal relationships, Language & communication and organisational culture) and the demographic variables on knowledge transfer were assessed. From these variables four hypotheses were formulated and tested. The study employed a cross-sectional study and a total of 62 African foreign doctors practicing in South African provincial hospitals completed a structured questionnaire. The findings indicated that interpersonal relationships, language and communication as well as organisational culture influenced knowledge transfer. Also, there was a variation on the influence of language and communication on knowledge transfer among different age groups in the organisation. Based on the research findings the results were discussed and compared and contrasted to previous research and the literature review. The recommendations as outlined in a graphical representation indicate how the organisation can improve the transfer of knowledge and improve their efficacy in the process subsequently.
