A critical time lag exists from the generation of new knowledge to integration into direct patient care. One effort to address this problem is through clinical initiatives to translate research findings into everyday practice at the unit, department, or institutional level. Such efforts can be particularly challenging when faced with the real-world conditions that healthcare professionals must confront in their day-to-day practice. These initiatives may be in response to an external requirement, a desire to improve practice, or to change care delivery to a more evidence-based model.
