From the Editors
Audit and feedback is a recognised practice change strategy, however, studies predominantly focus on the audit component without full description of the feedback process. This issue launches with a refresher on practical considerations for audit and feedback. Identifying barriers and facilitators is also integral to evidence-based audit and feedback in JBI's approach, while a concept mapping project reports on barriers and facilitators to scaling-up small rapid cycle best practice projects.
Collaboration is a big focus in this issue, each paper makes a practical or theoretical contribution, describing how collaboration benefits primary research in an autoethnography, and in evidence-implementation studies on topics as diverse as thalassemia care, prevention of needle-stick injury among nurses, screening among stroke patients for aphasia and in pelvic floor muscle training for postpartum mothers. Benefits of collaboration evident in this issue include the value from being connected with like-minded individuals, a shared purpose, ability to achieve deeper growth and more useful research impact.
