There is widespread commitment across public service agencies in the UK and elsewhere to ensuring that the best available evidence is used to improve public services. The challenge is not only making research evidence accessible and available, but also getting it used. This book provides a timely and novel contribution to understanding and enhancing evidence use. It builds on and complements the popular and best-selling What Works?: Evidence-Based Policy and Practice in Public Services by drawing together current knowledge from the education, health care, social care, and criminal justice fields.
