We conducted a pilot study to investigate the impact of a single day's training, the purpose of which was to disseminate good practice, by asking delegates to complete a questionnaire, six months after attending the day. The completion rate was 56%. Our results suggested only a modest effect on practice, 54% of respondents reporting a change in at least one of the five domains of practice asked about. The question arises of whether this type of training is the most effective way of disseminating good practice.
