points There is increasing interest in making clinical and policy decisions based on research findings.
Not all research findings should or can be implemented ; prioritisation is necessary The decision whether to implement research evidence depends on the quality of the research, the degree of uncertainty of the findings, relevance to the clinical setting, whether the benefits to the patient outweigh any adverse effects, and whether the overall benefits justify the costs when competing priorities and available resources are taken into account.
Systematic reviews that show consistent results are likely to provide more reliable research evidence than non-systematic reviews or single studies.
Researchers should design studies that take into account how and by whom the results will be used and the need to convince decision makers to use the intervention studied.
