Crawshaw, M. and Wates, M. (2005) Mind the gap - a case study for changing organisational responses to disabled parents and their families using evidence based practice. Research Policy and Planning, 23 (2). pp. 111-122. ISSN 0264-519X
This case study describes work carried out by the Making Research Count (University of York) project with social services and health agencies to help them develop services for disabled parents. The structure combined the presentation of relevant research findings over one day with follow up consultation and an additional day’s structured input after eight weeks to develop goal-focussed implementation strategies. Adult learning theory, systemic organisational theory and practice around management of change and the System for Analysing Verbal Interaction (SAVI) were used. The evaluation suggested that it achieved some success in facilitating research informed implementation strategies. A typology for measuring change is suggested.
