What do you consider could be done to assist your MEU become more engaged in using research to develop EBEP?

8 Data Analysis Transcripts from interviews Coding categories developed Concepts identified and relationships developed Emerging themes identified Themes into model development

9 Where to from here ? Who will benefit from this research? How to develop a culture of evidence based educational practice Developing education initiatives

10 Advancing forward……. Role of QMET Development of model of EBEP from research findings Support for MEU staff Possible funding opportunities for research projects/initiatives Collaborative link to QLD Health & other health care groups (ClinEdQ) for EBP Link to national organizations
