a targeted initiative to disseminate

research evidence to health care professionals


Introduction

Evidence Rounds is a multi-component dissemination strategy. We have designed, implemented and developed this initiative targeted at health care professionals to promote and facilitate evidence informed practice.

 

Evidence Rounds involve group sessions exploring the best available evidence on clinical questions/topics chosen by staff.

Evidence Rounds was set up by Aislinn Conway, PhD Fellow of the HRB-TMRN with the collaboration of staff at the neonatal and obstetric departments in the women and childrens' division of University Hospital Galway especially:

  • Áine Binchy

  • Jane Grosvenor

  • Margaret Coohill

  • Deirdre Naughton

  • Jean James

The initiative will be adapted and targeted at staff in the women and children’s directorate. Evidence Rounds were adapted from an initiative called “Evidence in Practice Groups” created by Jacqui LeMay at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust as part of the Clinical Evidence Based Information Service (CEBIS).
