Evidence-based change is central to many recent developments in the NHS. This book brings together practical and personal experiences from a wide range of externally evaluated healthcare projects. It demonstrates how to facilitate and promote evidence-based change by drawing on realistic advice on what is, and is not, effective. It enables readers to benefit from lessons learned and provides a comprehensive insight into implementing changes based on research evidence, across broad range of settings in the NHS. 'An important book. It has many exciting insights, enjoy it.' Jenny Simpson in the Foreword 'A unique collection. There are some brave admissions and this is probably the best attempt yet to capture the nitty-gritty of the evidence-into-practice agenda in UK healthcare. I hope you find it a gripping read'. Trisha Greenhalgh in the Foreword
