Improving awareness and access to evidence

The first pillar of our evidence-informed practice activity focuses on ensuring social service stakeholders have awareness of, and the ability to access, different forms of evidence.  It is an essential prerequisite for evidence-informed practice, but on its own is not sufficient.  In line with Best et al (2008), this is the longest established area of activity for IRISS, and thus the area where we can draw on several innovative and cost-effective examples.
