Applying evidence into routine clinical care at a unit level: The exemplar of renal anaemia management

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Variability in implementing research evidence into clinical practice is widespread, including in the management of patients with kidney disease. There are numerous well‐known barriers and facilitators to evidence implementation identified in other clinical settings and a few chronic kidney disease studies. The necessary changes to health systems that support evidence implementation take time to design, apply and to have a measurable effect. Measurement against an agreed standard is fundamental to this process. We use the example of renal anaemia management across a dialysis unit to illustrate an approach to these issues.
