Several barriers, grounded in differences in knowledge, training, skills, and awareness, interfere with academics communicating successfully with practitioners about evidence. We describe several ways to reduce such barriers. These include providing sources that are trustworthy and accessible to managers; developing managerial skill in diagnosis; carrying out evidence-based practice; and communicating evidence in ways that are attractive, understandable, memorable, and actionable through channels that are likely to be noticed. We suggest several means for accomplishing each of these.
