    Abstract

    Tailored interventions to change professional practice are interventions planned following an investigation into the factors that explain current professional practice and any reasons for resisting new practice. These factors are referred to as barriers to change. The barriers may vary in different healthcare settings, groups of healthcare professionals or clinical tasks. It is widely assumed that efforts to change professional practice have a lower likelihood of success unless these barriers are identified and taken into account.
