DCRI Evidence to Practice Series: Inflammatory Bowel Disease - November 1, 2018

Wilmington, NC US
November 1, 2018

It takes an average of 17 years for research evidence to reach clinical practice.1 Research results are often disseminated through presentation and publication without explanation of their practice-level implications. Ideally, an educational activity that effectively translates research into practice would incorporate a blend of the following2: 1. Predispose the learner to change by increasing knowledge 2. Enable the change by promoting conducive conditions in practice 3. Reinforce the change once it is made The proposed IBD Evidence to Practice Series touches on these three goals by explaining research results, providing case-driven examples of how those results might be applied in practice, and reinforcing learning through multiple touch points. In creating this educational tool, we leverage the Duke experiences in data-driven, evidence-based educational initiatives that address gaps in care and accelerate the adoption of the latest research into clinical practice.
