By Sandra M. Nutley, Isabel Walter and Huw T.O. DaviesThere is widespread commitment across public service agencies in the UK and elsewhere to ensuring that the best available evidence is used to improve public services. The challenge is not only making research evidence accessible and available but also getting it used. This book provides a timely and novel contribution to understanding and enhancing evidence use.

It draws together current knowledge about how research gets used and how this can be encouraged and improved. The authors explore various multidisciplinary frameworks for understanding the research use agenda and consider how research use and the impact of research can be assessed.
