The ‘starter for 10’ series provides a starting point for managers, practitioners and researchers embarking on projects designed to implement best evidence to improve service delivery, enhance clinical practice or introduce innovations into health or social care. Each paper introduces an aspect of evidence-based practice. We will draw on relevant literature and our experience to highlight principles and to offer practical tips. The series is produced by the Translating Knowledge into Action (TK2A) Theme of the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) for South Yorkshire.
The ultimate aim is to help you put knowledge into practice to improve the quality, effectiveness and equity of care.
The objectives of this paper are to:
- describe the differences between a theory, model and conceptual framework;
- explain how theories, models and frameworks can be used as tools or a guide to the change
- signpost further information and resources.
