This study aimed to investigate the relationship between knowledge management indices and creativity in Isfahan-based hospitals. This study is descriptive and corelational. The population included head nurses of some selected hospitals in Isfahan who were selected by census. Research instruments in this study consisted of two knowledge management and creativity questionnaires. There were 80 respondents in the study. The data were statistically analyzed by descriptive statistics (frequency, mean and standard deviation) as well as inferential statistics (corelational index and multiple regression).

 

The results of the study indicated that there was a statistically significant relationship between knowledge management indices and creativity (r=0.532) which was significant (p<0.01). However, there was no significant relationship between mean scores of knowledge management and creativity in terms of tenure, gender and age.
