Project: Evidence-based medicine for the ageing population: from theory to practice: a dual approach.

project duration
01-JAN-01 – 30-JUN-02
Nowadays medical practice is in need of implementation strategies translating the knowledge available from EBM to individual patient care, in particular with regards to care for the elderly patient. At an international level the Cochrane Collaboration gathers scientific evidence on diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. This evidence, however does not easily reach practitioners in the field of health care. As both practitioners and public show an important resistance. Several countries are in search of adequate strategies and methodologies to facilitate the transfer of evidence to practice. The aim of this European project is to bring international experience in this field together. This effort can result in european guidelines and recommendations concerning the development of adequate implementation strategies.
