Resumo: Healthcare is a knowledge-intensive sector, thus, knowledge management is fundamental to decision-making process throughout the diagnostic-therapeutic cycle. Specifically, sharing among doctors can benefit and improve medical decisions. Based on previous research this paper seeks to analyse how, comparing to performance geais, learning favours current behaviours and intentions regarding future behaviours. lt is hypothesised that: 1) the current frequency of sharing behaviours is positively affected by learning geais and negatively affected by performance geais; and 2) the intention to future sharing is positively influenced by learning geais, by a positive attitude regarding the benefits of sharing, and by the current frequency of sharing. The model is empirically tested by PLS on data from a sample of 129 MDs working at hospitais and primary care facilities integrated in the Portuguese NHS. Results from SmartPLS show that the current frequency of sharing is completely independent from doctors' geais, attitudes, and intentions. ln fact, MDs more motivated to learn and more positive to the benefits of sharing have a stronger intention, but this by no means affects the actual frequency of sharing. So, a "word-deed" inconsistency is apparent from the results of this research, and further research is needed in order to understand why physicians learning-oriented and prone to knowledge sharing, don't actually engage in sharing behaviours more frequently than their colleagues. This work intends to find and exploit which are the factors that might influence their knowledge sharing behaviours and, consequently, contributing with new knowledge useful to HR management in the Portuguese NHS.
