: (Sustaining Transformation by Evidence Mobilisation): overcoming challenges to achieve knowledge sharing across the health system through a Community of Practice, Joanne Naughton

There is evidence to show that healthcare decision-makers are currently ad hoc users of research evidence and that interventions tried so far to improve uptake and use of research have had little or no impact. The ambition of STEMClub is to change the NHS decision-making culture:
“At every decision-making table, there will be someone with the skills, experience and knowledge to ensure that decisions are informed by relevant evidence.”
We will share our progress on setting up a community of practice; our first steps in making links with Integrated Care System workstreams and our plans for the future.
