This chapter explores the multifaceted approaches aimed at getting research to have an impact on practice. It examines the extent to which there is evidence about their effectiveness. It also considers how different combinations of interventions are likely to be underpinned by particular ways of thinking about research-informed practice. It evaluates three emergent models of research-informed practice — the research-based practitioner model, the embedded research model, and the organisational excellence model.

Keywords: research use; practice; evidence; research-informed practice; practitioner model; embedded research model; organisational excellence model
