New Alliance for Useful Evidence report on 'Evidence-informed practice'

Evidence for the Frontline: A report for the Alliance for Useful Evidence

A new paper explores what can be drawn from the advances in a range of fields to mobilise research knowledge more effectively across social policy and practice.

Published by the Alliance for Useful Evidence, and written by the IEE's Jonathan Sharples, the report frames the issue by looking at the individual elements of an effective evidence ecosystem – production, synthesis, transformation, and implementation – whilst at the same time considering what needs to be done to integrate these elements more coherently. As well as looking at gaps in current infrastructure, Dr Sharples also highlights some exciting new initiatives and ideas that could produce tangible benefits for professional practice.
