According to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research:
1 in 3 patients do not get treatments of proven effectiveness
1 in 4 patients get care that is not needed or potentially harmful
Up to 3/4 of patients do not get the information they need for decision-making
Up to 1/2 of physicians do not get the evidence they need for decision-making
Congratulations to our 2016 Evidence-into-Practice Award winners and their teams for beating the odds and successfully translated evidence into practice to improve care!
