From the Editors
Issue 1 is being released a month earlier than usual, and with an interesting collection of papers, accompanying pod and video commentary related to implementation. Our focus on bringing increased focus on context and clinical implications of implementation case studies is highlighted through video and podcast content, and through increased website visits and twitter followers (@JBI_EI). Clinician and author voices are compelling opportunities to get inside perspective on completed implementation studies. Connect with
@JBI_EI and share your own implementation story!
This issue explores types of process evaluation from multiple perspectives, offers a reprint of the highly cited JBI methodological guidance for scoping reviews, and a diverse range of methods and clinical research findings. Studies on application of evidence-based knowledge in learning contexts always show value and create a learning opportunity, while a paper on assessment the quality of evidence underlying recommendations in type 2 diabetes highlights the importance of transparent, detailed reporting to increase confidence in guideline recommendations. This issue concludes with a superb, diverse range of implementation case studies – you can share the citation details via your social media from
https://journals.lww.com/ijebh/pages/currenttoc.aspx; lets share the impact and possibilities for better quality hospital based nutrition and hydration, reducing adverse events from intravenous therapy, safety in surgical counts and minimising bruising and pain associated with anticoagulant injections. Studies on podiatric post-operative recovery and creating a conducive environment for sleep in hospitals round out this issue!
