Once you have ACQUIREd and APPRAISEd the evidence on your particular clinical question, it is important to determine whether the answers you have generated can be applied to your circumstances: the country, location or clinic where you work, the case in front of you and/or the availability of therapies and owner possibilities you are dealing with. The application of evidence into practice can sometimes be challenging, as we’ll see in this chapter.
- Use a structured framework to determine whether the evidence is applicable to you, your patients and your environment.
- Describe ways of communicating new evidence to colleagues and clients.
- Construct a strategy to maximise the chances of successfully implementing evidence-based changes in your practice/clinic.
