The European Implementation Score (EIS)

Coordination:Silke Wiedmann, Peter Heuschmann  
Projct-Funding:European Union, Framework Programme 7, 225153

The European Union funded project “The European Implementation Score (EIS)”, coordinated by Prof. Charles Wolfe, King´s College London, aims to identify factors that predict the successful implementation of research evidence into clinical practice. The aim is to develop a European implementation score (“EIS”) to estimate the degree of implementation into practice of research findings. To examine the predictive properties of the different implementation methods large datasets from several European stroke audits are pooled and statistically analyzed. The transferability of the methodology on other vascular disease conditions will be investigated by using coronary heart disease as an example
