Using evidence: how research can inform public services

This publication provides a timely and novel contribution to understanding and enhancing evidence use. In particular, the authors explore various multidiscipliary frameworks for understanding the research use agenda; consider how research use and the impact of research can be assessed; summarise the empirical evidence from the education, health care, social care and criminal justice fields about how research is used and how this can be improved; and draw out practical issues that need to be addressed if research is to have greater impact on public services. The publication also proves an invaluable guide for anyone involved in the implementation of evidence-based policy and practice.
