Abstract

The translation of research into practice is currently a high‐profile issue in the NHS. A number of regions have undertaken work in this area. Reports on a project that is part of the Anglia and Oxford Regions′s “Getting Research into Practice” (GRiP) initiative. The work focuses on the use of steroids in pre‐term delivery, a procedure that medical evidence suggests can reduce neo‐natal mortality and morbidity. Presents a number of findings which suggest that getting research into practice does not merely rest on the availability of well‐researched evidence.
