From the Editors
What do we know about mentoring, what do we really know about
mentoring to help move knowledge into practice? This group of authors screened 2053 studies so you do not have to, and showed mentoring helps increase the use of research evidence in practice, helps share knowledge, build clinical skills and support educational strategies. These strategies, how they have been used, in which contexts are across each of the implementation reports in this December issue. What are the essential characteristics of mentorship, and how do we conceptualise and operationalise in comparison with
partnerships? If you are planning quality improvement work, or a student of implementation science, this issue is a rich source of data and knowledge.
As always, enjoy reading, and share what you enjoy
