Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This project was designed to explore the process of encouraging research utilisation in a large Community and Mental Health Trust in Leeds. It was organised into three phases. A baseline survey of community and mental health nurses was carried out to establish an overview of the factors that inhibit and promote the use of research in the Trust. A publication series of research commentaries was designed to address some of the problems of finding and summarising relevant literature for clinical practice. An evaluation programme to determine the impact of the research commentaries was undertaken. The cost implications of such a
process have also been identified.
