||Mining the management literature for insights into implementing evidence-based change in healthcare
||Due to the complex nature and under utilization of evidence based practices in healthcare, Harlos et al. posit that a cross-disciplinary synthesis of research may help to ameliorate local management deficits. A systematic narrative synthesis approach was implemented in order to explain relationships between 100 different studies from the top 5 management journals. For this knowledge synthesis, knowledge translation was identified as either direct, intermediate, or indirect. Among these studies, 10 broad categories of organizational factors emerged. Although a detailed analysis of barriers, facilitators and proximal influences of knowledge translation was beyond the scope of this article, themes relating to power dynamics, teamwork and inclusiveness and more are discussed.
