Evidence, policy and practice: Critical perspectives in health and social care

Jon Glasby


This book provides a hard-hitting and deliberately provocative overview of the relationship between evidence, policy and practice; how policy is implemented, and how research can and should influence the policy process. It critiques the notion of ‘evidence-based practice’, suggesting instead a more inclusive idea of ‘knowledge-base practice’, based in part on the lived experience of service users.

Keywords: evidence, policy, practice, policy implementation, policy process, service users
