The aim of this study was to explore, using a mixed-method approach, which aspects of a healthcare organisation influence the translation of guidance into practice. Understanding of the role of organisational factors will enable better targeting of knowledge and guidance. This study contributed to a framework for the translation of national recommendations into routine clinical practice, thus improving patient outcomes and quality in healthcare.

This study was funded by CSO Fellowship scheme and was led by Professor Jan Clarkson at the University of Dundee co-supervised by Professor Lorna McKee and Dr Craig Ramsay.
