The Yorkshire Quality and Safety Research group are delighted to invite you to our upcoming research seminar:
A ‘real world’ trial of a strategy to promote evidence-based primary care in West Yorkshire
Robbie Foy, Clinical Professor of Primary Care, University of Leeds
When/where: Thursday 18th January 2018, 12.30-1.30pm in the Sovereign Lecture Theatre at the Bradford Royal Infirmary.
Clinical evidence that can improve patient outcomes does not reliably find its way into everyday care. The gap between evidence and practice limits the health, social and economic impacts of clinical research. Dissemination of evidence-based practice via clinical guidelines is necessary but seldom sufficient by itself to ensure implementation. Furthermore, the general practice context presents particular challenges – especially given limited practice organisational capacity, increasing workload and complexity of care, and competing priorities.
This presentation will report the key methods and findings from a major programme of work involving general practices across West Yorkshire. We aimed to develop and evaluate an implementation package to support the uptake of a range of guideline recommendations and sustainably integrate it within general practice systems and resources. We made our evaluation as pragmatic as possible to ensure relevance to ‘real world’ primary care. Seminar participants can judge for themselves to what extent we met our goals.
The seminar will be followed by food, drinks, and an opportunity for further discussion.
We look forward to seeing you there.
