Securing quality in health care – what can be more important? In my research, this is about identifying barriers and facilitators to evidence-based practice and collaboration between stakeholders – as well as investigating interventions to secure that the health care provided is based on the best available knowledge. As a consequence, my research corresponds to two related fields within caring science: knowledge implementation and patient participation.
Knowledge implementation and patient participation – partners for the future
Patient participation and knowledge implementation highlights are: what is evidence, and which interventions works in what context, in order to overcome the lack of correspondence between what may be established practice and what is recognised to be best practice in health care. These are important questions to secure evidence-based practice, during and following a change, where staff, managers and patients and their next of kin ought to have opportunities to participate.
