Getting research into practice: facing the issues.
Dopson S., Mant J., Hicks N.
The translation of research into practice is currently a high-profile issue in the NHS. A number of regions have undertaken work in this area. Reports on a project that is part of the Anglia and Oxford Regions's "getting Research into Practice" (GRiP) initiative. The work focuses on the use of steroids in pre-term delivery, a procedure that medical evidence suggests can reduce neo-natal mortality and morbidity. Presents a number of findings which suggest that getting research into practice does not merely rest on the availability of well-researched evidence.
