Briefing Papers
This series of 10 briefing papers provides a starting point for managers, practitioners and researchers embarking on projects designed to implement best evidence to improve service delivery, enhance clinical practice or introduce innovations into health or social care.

Getting started:
1) Getting started: from idea to project plan

3) Partnership working

Implementation strategies:
4) Facilitation (coming shortly)
5) Knowledge brokering (coming shortly)
6) Blended e-learning (coming shortly)
7) Patient and public involvement (coming shortly)

8) Capturing impact (coming shortly)
