Evidence, Policy and Practice: Critical Perspectives in Health and Social Care

Front Cover
Jon Glasby
Policy Press, 2011 - Medical - 128 pages
This edited book provides a hard-hitting and deliberately provocative overview of the relationship between evidence, policy and practice, how policy is implemented and how research can and should influence the policy process. It critiques the notion of 'evidence-based practice', suggesting instead a more inclusive idea of 'knowledge-base practice', based in part on the lived experience of service users. It will be of interest to everyone in health and social care policy, practice and research.
