Clinical practice guidelines are an important tool for health professionals. they’re a tremendous collation of the evidence, usually put together by people who really, really know what they’re talking about.
But they’re not much use to anybody sitting on a shelf. They need to be put into practice.
The National Health and Medical Research Council commissioned Mark, and then colleagues at the University of Sydney, to write this guide.
It provided evidence about the multiple ways that are needed to change the behaviour of clinicians, so that consumers get the best possible care.
This guide was an early stage in what has come to be known as implementation science.
It is a companion to How to present the evidence for consumers: Preparation of consumer publications, also published by the NHMRC.
