Implementation Frameworks vs. Common Sense: Bringing Evidence Into Practice

‘Despite the push for evidence-based practice the majority of healthcare interventions being used may not be based on current evidence. A mere 14% of evidence-based interventions are estimated to make it into real world healthcare settings…

‘Within implementation science there are many theories, frameworks and models to assist this process. However the sheer number of these, addressing different aspects of the implementation process, can make their selection and use overwhelming and unappealing.

Furthermore, many frameworks are based on high-resource settings and may ignore obvious priorites in low-resource settings.

HIFA uses a common-sense, systems-thinking approach to better understand drivers and barriers to evidence-informed health policy and practice, in the context of health worker empowerment:
