Evidence-based quality improvement: The Great Leap Forward?
The transfer of research findings into practice is unpredictable and can be a slow and haphazard process

· A range of strategies can be employed to change professional and organizational behaviour.
· Just as there is an expectation that clinical practice should be evidence-based, approaches to changing clinical practice should also be evidence-based
· We don’t yet know which intervention works best for a given targeted behaviour in a given context

Given the limitations of the evidence base, a pragmatic way to improving practice would include:

· Consideration of potential benefits, harms, costs and unintended consequences in selecting priorities for quality improvement
· Being clear about what change is required
· Drawing upon models and frameworks to help map out key influences on practice
Using an explicit and justifiable basis for the selection of intervention strategies
