  • The Evidence into Practice programme is designed to help research teams bridge the gap from academic research findings, to actionable information for people practising in the field.
  • We are currently funding four project teams based in the UK, who have already received funding from the Health Foundation, with up to £50,000 each to fund the development of tools and resources to support the implementation of findings in practice.

Evidence into Practice is a programme from the Health Foundation that funds the development of tools and resources, based on completed research studies, to support the implementation of findings in practice.

Aims

The Evidence into Practice 2019 programme aims to support experienced teams based in the UK, who have previously received funding from the Health Foundation and whose work has resulted in actionable findings that are applicable to health and care, including social care, practice and/or policy.

We are supporting four teams with up to £50,000 each. The funds will support the teams to develop innovative ways to promote their research findings to those who influence, plan and deliver health and care services.
