  • Managing clinical knowledge for health care improvement

    Balas, E. Andrew; Boren, Suzanne A.; Office of the Dean of the College of Allied Health Sciences (2000)
    The authors assess the growth in clinical research studies coupled with a slow rate of adoption, often taking an average of 17 years for new evidence-based findings to reach clinical practice. Some issues discussed include the need for a more efficient information infrastructure to better connect front-line professionals with the research community, difficulties in translating research into practice, and an inadequate system to help health care clinicians evaluate the strength of new study findings.
