Using EPIS to implement evidence-based practice – the best evidence-based practice

Research Briefing

Keywords: evidence-based, evidence-based practice, implementation, EPIS, evidence-based practice implimentation

Effective implementation of evidence-based practice presents a series of real challenges to many organisations. Whilst evidence-based practice is the gold standard for decision making and practice or operations in any organisation, it, as a systematic practice, is far from a simple prospect to implement in an organisation and, as a consequence, a growing amount of research is being conducted around best practice for implementing evidence-based practice.

Previous studies have given rise to a number of frameworks to help organisations implement evidence-based practice. Perhaps the most well-known and oft used framework is the EPIS or the Exploration, Preparation, Implementation and Sustainment of evidence-based practice framework.

This research briefing looks at a new systematic review unpicking evidence-based practice implementation using EPIS and is essential reading for anyone about to embark on, in the process of implementing or trying to sustain evidence-based practice.
