Formatted Abstract/Summary Two Queensland Health library staff have been members of the Evidence Based Practice Interest Group within the Clinical Practice Improvement Centre since its inception in 2006. CPIC has responsibilities across the decentralised health service. Our contributions to date mainly relate to coordination e.g. of training, and provision of content for the CPIC website e.g. links and predefined searches.

One of us delivers multidisciplinary training in evidence based practice, supports and participates in clinical research, and is a member of committees engaged in the development of nursing practice, clinical guidelines and hospital-wide quality improvements. Collaboration with a local university ensures future clinicians are well supported in a regional area with limited resources.

The authors work in libraries that are part of the Queensland Health (QHealth) network stretching from the Brisbane metropolitan area to the west and far north of the state.

Our contribution to this panel discussion can be summarized as ‘the four Ps’.
