Summary "This important book, based on research funded by the Department of Health Service and Delivery Organisation programme, makes a significant contribution to the literature on improving health services. Out of their exhaustive systematic review of the literature, which unpicked the many different research approaches to the study of the diffusion of innovations in organisations, the authors have produced a model for understanding the complexities of spreading and sustaining innovations in health services for future programmes. Four case studies illustrate how this can be applied in practice."--BOOK JACKET
