Have you ever tried to get a new guideline or piece of evidence into your everyday practice and been surprised by how long it took and how complex it was? Did you struggle to measure the project’s success? As you reflect, you can likely identify what would have been helpful to know beforehand, and what support you would have liked on the way?
Getting evidence into practice: steps to success is a three-day, highly interactive and outcome focused workshop that covers the essential skills and knowledge needed to facilitate the implementation of evidence and innovation into everyday practice.
