Abstract [en]

The overall aim was to investigate how the Habilitation and Assistive Technology services in UppsalaCounty council in Sweden during 2009 to 2011 has worked with in-service training and other support to implement ways to work in evidence-based practice (EBP) for all staff. A specific aim was to investigate the staffs' knowledge, skills, attitudes and use of EBP.

Invited were all staff (n=260), no matter which profession or position. Those participating did so in courses in EBP, a one-day-training in EBP, information about EBP in work-place meetings, tutoring in ways to work in EBP, and they answered a webbased questionnaire about EBP 2009 and/or 2011. There were four courses in EBP: EBP I - Introduction for leaders, EBP II - Why, how, when?, EBP III - Studycircle, and EBP IV - From idea to projectplan. Data was collected in attendance lists, number of fulfilled reports about evidence in interventions, number of fulfilled projectplans, and answers to questions in the webbased questionnaire.

The results of the project on in-service training and other support showed:

  • that the number of participants in all in-service training was satisfying
  • that those participating in the courses, the reports on evidence in interventions and the projectplans were all directed by what is the participants' tasks in daily work.
  • that at the end of the project more used both secondary sources and primary sources in their search for information and more felt certain about the meaning of terms used for critical appraisal of articles
  • that one should keep track of the fact that more at the end of the project answered that EBP is a    buzz-word, at the same time more answered that they usually use the ways to work in EBP
  • that many commented time as a factor that is both a facilitator and a barrier to learn and use EBP and makes time an important factor to further investigated.
