Resisting complexity evidence based knowledge and the neglect of practice

Evidence based medicine is the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients

(Sackett 1996 p. 71)


Resisting complexity evidence based knowledge and the neglect of practice

  • “Drug Policy and the Public Good are collaboratively written by an international group of career scientist to provide an analytical basis on which to build relevant global drug policies and to inform policy makers who have direct responsibility for public health and social welfare”

    (Babor et.al 2010)

What does the concept of evidence refer to?

Resisting complexity evidence based knowledge and the neglect of practice

  • What is the relationship between social injustice, drug use and different drug policies intended and unintended consequences?

  • What is the connection between the concept of harm, risk, stigmatization and marginalization?


How should the practitioners relate to the evidence produced by science

How should the practitioners relate to the evidence produced by science?

Evidence based practice can:

  • Reduce the practitioners autonomy and increase their responsibility

  • Lead to a “cookbook” approach where the profession specific assessments are made redundant

  • Be used politically to cut down on foundlings to health and social care


Research utilization

Research Utilization

  • Research seldom change the direction of a given policy (Weiss 1977, 1980, 1999)

  • Policymakers will use the evidence which is best adjusted to the political logic and rhetoric ( Black 2001, Stevens 2007)

  • Evidence is used if it supports the consensus and is used selectively if there is a lack of consensus (Weiss 1977, Black 2001, Stevens 2007)

What level of policymaking should be evidence based?

A) Practice policies (use of recourses by practitioners)

B) Service policies (recourses allocation, pattern of services)

C) Governance policies (organizational and financial structures)
