Formatted Abstract/Summary
Background:
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.

Objective:
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.

Methods:
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.

Conclusion:
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.
