Evidence producing organisations: what they are and how they have developed

Research Briefing

Keywords: evidence-based practice, evidence producing organisations, waves of evidence-based practice

Evidence-based practice

The interest in evidence-based practice has been growing steadily since the early 1950s in both organisations and the research. The primary interest in evidence- based practice comes from (in order of research and organisational interest combined):

  1. Australia
  2. UnitedStates
  3. Canada
  4. UnitedKingdom

Evidence-based practice is largely developed on the basis of its use in medicine, however, other sectors such as education, organisational development, policing and the airline industry are rapidly engaging with it.

This research briefing is vital for anyone involved in developing or managing evidence-based practice.
