Towards a model of evidence-informed decision making and service delivery

Policy Online carries a link (31.5.16) to a Centre for Community Child Health working paper highlighting issues and new approaches in evidence-based decision making in the area of health services.

‘A major thrust of policy and practice within human services in recent years has been the implementation of evidence-based practices. However, despite the wide-spread use of such evidence-based programs and strategies, we are not always getting the kind of results we would expect when we try to apply these strategies in real world settings. In response to this situation, we have seen the emergence of the implementation science movement, with its emphasis on ‘implementation fidelity’. The assumption behind the implementation agenda is that, to get better results, we need to be much more thorough about ensuring that practitioners are able to deliver evidence-based programs faithfully and consistently.’
