Blog: Just Because I Can Doesn’t Mean I Will: Behavioural science and translating professional change into practice

All innovation in health and social care has the same final common pathway: health and social care professionals doing something new or different.  There are numerous theories of behaviour and behaviour change, so people who are trying to innovate can find it confusing and difficult to meaningfully draw on behavioural science.  Here, Drs Jo Hart, Lucie Byrne-Davis and Eleanor Bull, Health Psychologists, discuss the current research about health professional behaviour, introduce the work they are doing in studying the translation of research to improve practice, and outline some implications for policy.
