In an initiative with potential application in other countries, the
Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) and Health Education England (HEE) are campaigning for decisions in the English healthcare sector to be fully evidence-based.
A Million Decisions, the campaign recognises that every day across the healthcare sector in England over a million decisions are made that have a profound and lasting impact on people’s lives and which influence the quality of healthcare and the cost of services. The campaign began in January this year and is supported by a series of case studies.
The campaign is linked to the
Knowledge for Healthcare framework, which is summarised in the following diagram and explained in detail in the Policy Statement.
