Abstract

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is currently high on political and professional agendas. However, there is a suggestion that despite apparent enthusiasm for EBP, it is not becoming a reality. A variety of reasons for evidence not being implemented in practice exist, including the way in which evidence is communicated, how staff are involved in changes in practice, the availability of resources, patient expectations and the priority afforded to EBP by individuals and organizations. These issues must be addressed if EBP is to succeed.
