Afhandlingens engelske introduktion:
This thesis deals with knowledge translation within occupational therapy. The overall purpose of this study is to provide knowledge concerning research utilization in occupational therapy by investigating aspects affecting the implementation of evidence-based knowledge in occupational therapy within stroke rehabilitation.

Originally Sackett et al. defined evidence-based medicine as “the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients” (Sackett et al. 1996). Evidence-based medicine is still used as a concept but has developed and is today just as often characterized as an evidence-based practice including the health care service as a whole (Upshur et al. 2001). As the concept of evidence has become part of everyday life in Danish healthcare services evidence-based practice has gained local actuality. It is implemented for the purpose of creating a practice which integrates research-based evidence, clinical expertise, and patients’ preferences in the clinical decision-making - an aim the local management at the University Hospital has acceded to (OUH 2000). In 2000 a process of development towards becoming “An Evidence-based Hospital” was presented (OUH 2000, 2005, 2009). In order to further qualify the implementation process the occupational therapists at the hospital jointly decided in 2005 that the implementation of an evidence-based occupational therapy was to be the subject of a local PhD study. I am an occupational therapist by profession and was head of the department where the study was initiated. In spring 2006 I changed position and became responsible for the PhD study.

The findings of the study are expected to contribute to occupational therapy literature on knowledge translation in the form of occupational therapists gaining enhanced reflective and critical use of an evidence-based practice and thereby improving quality of clinical practice.
