Considerable progress has been made in NHS partner organisations in taking forward the clinical effectiveness agenda within South Yorkshire, with many examples of innovative practice that makes a real difference to patients. However, variation in clinical practice and a failure sometimes to use evidence where it exists means that patients may not be receiving a consistently high standard of care across the collaborative. Additionally, learning from these initiatives is rarely shared across the health community, with organisations often working in relative isolation.
The Translating Knowledge into Action theme aims to develop step change in the way research findings are implemented in practice through trialling and evaluating innovative implementation strategies to facilitate evidence-based, clinically effective care. The theme will address local priorities, driven by current and emerging national priorities. Partnership working between NHS and academic partners will facilitate the effective translation of knowledge into action by individuals and teams in order to enhance the quality of care and benefit patients with long-term conditions. Educational and work-based learning initiatives will be supported to promote changes in clinical behaviour.
