Access Evidence

Evidence informed resources for practitioners working in frontline services

How do you keep on top of the latest research evidence if you are a busy practitioner? This is the challenge facing many of those working in frontline services. Research shows that while there is an increasing amount of research evidence published, applying it to frontline practice is more difficult. The need for shorter, accessible evidence briefs, and how to interpret research findings are some of the issues raised by frontline practitioners that impact on how they engage with evidence and use it widely.

We developed Access Evidence as a series of literature reviews accompanied by short, accessible summaries and supporting resources. We engaged with frontline practitioners to ensure the content was relevant to different settings, and to draw from practice wisdom in putting together tips, learning and guidance for practice.
