Abstract

Evaluation of the way in which respiratory care is delivered is increasingly recognised to be an important area for research. When service developments are reported, it is not always clear whether they are subsequently implemented within the reporting institution, and if not why not. 3281 abstracts from three specialist journals and one general journal were reviewed, and 36 reported evaluated service developments identi¿ed. The authorsof each of these were approached to determine whether the reported service developments were in use in their institution.
