Compiling information and best practice

The best leaders, practitioners and service developers know the importance of learning from others. Our evidence reviews have helped to transform services and organisations all over the world.

We scan thousands of research articles, books and databases to distil the key messages for you.

We specialise in providing complex information in an accessible, user friendly format that you can put into practice immediately. We provide evidence reviews, horizon scans and toolkits tailored to your needs.

We have been delighted by the rapid reviews from The Evidence Centre. The material was robust, professional and timely, and made a real impact on our decision making.

Working with the voluntary sector

Person-centred care involves placing people at the forefront to help them retain control, make informed decisions and support a partnership between individuals, families and services. We worked with National Voices to summarise the findings of 779 systematic reviews about ways to put person-centred care into practice. We presented the results in an accessible format so commissioners, health professionals and service-users could see what works best and how to invest resources. You can read more here

We have produced hundreds of rapid research reviews. Examples include evidence scans for the Health Foundation about self-management, measuring patient experience, patient safety, quality in general practice, improving patient flow in hospitals, ways to spread innovation, barriers to improvement in the NHS, and many more.
