Centre for Clinical Effectiveness
We are an evidence-based practice support unit that encourages and supports health professionals, managers and policy makers to use the best available evidence to improve healthcare.
We provide information, expertise and resources to assist health service personnel in getting evidence from research into everyday clinical practice and evaluating the effect on patient care. This encompasses:
- evidence-based practice – clinical decisions made between health professionals and patients
- evidence-based decision making – organisational decisions made by managers, policy makers and health service consumers
- evidence-based change processes – organisational change such as establishing new models of service delivery, introducing new clinical practice guidelines or instituting new systems for decision-making
