As Visiting Professor to the Hall, Dr Fascia has a dual role. To promote excellent and robust research and engagement within the Oxford collegiate, and to participate in research projects with appropriate partners both nationally and internationally. His research is overarched from an Ignatian perspective and concentrates on the practical role of spirituality in healthcare, linking culture, society, functional, spatial, and complex data analysis with the spiritual and compassionate realities involved in caring for the whole person. Elements of his research also reflect on environmental sciences, association and prediction methods, leadership theory, primary and secondary care analysis, business development methods, and organisation sciences, with a focus on coping and recovery for patients with chronic conditions.

The role of religious experience in the knowledge transfer process. ISBN (eBook) 9783668681798 - ISBN (Book) 9783668681804
To date, there have been few studies which denote the affect of socio-cultural or religious phenomena within a transfer scenario as significant, and how this interaction may affect the outcome of the knowledge shared or exchanged in a business context. This paper therefore examines how, in a business context, knowledge transfer is influenced by perspectives given to the knowledge.
