The problem with integrating evidence-based practice

Research Briefing

Keywords: evidence-based practice, evidence-based practice development, evidence-based practice integration, workflow

As more and more organisations move into evidence-based practice,, both organisations and academic researchers have become concerned with and focused on how to develop and implement evidence-based practice in their organisations. Over the last 20 years or so a range of studies have looked at the barriers and facilitators of evidence-based practice. A range of barriers have been identified as the most common issues, such as:

  • lack of time
  • lack of knowledge
  • lack of skills
  • lack of management understanding.

Despite a considerable body of research which shows the positive outcomes from evidence-based practice coupled with goodwill, positive attitudes and interest in developing evidence-based practice, there are still substantial issues that need to be overcome when implementing it.
