Formatted Abstract/Summary
Getting research findings into practice or closing the gap between knowledge and practice are problems health authorities have tried to solve in different ways with minimal success.

Through an analysis of the concept of knowledge – both the explicit and the tacit – and based on the need for information in general practice, the objective is to develop a practicable model for implementing research findings in practice.

Qualitative interviews with general practitioners were performed, and different dissemination models e.g. EBM, The ’Breakthrough Series’ Collaborative Method and The Chronic Care Model were analysed. Result: A communication model is developed using: communication, dialogue and participation as the elements which depend on the relation between and the involvement of the researcher and the general practitioner.

Getting research into practice requires a very close co-operation between the researchers and the general practitioners, if it is to be successful. - But if the librarian or information professional takes over the task of getting research findings into general practice both by facilitating access to the right information and by acting as a moderator in the dialogue between and participation in research activities for the practitioner, the success will be more probable. This is a very important object for our profession.
