The evidence-based practice movement raises questions about the continuing viability of research utilization models.
Enabling the implementation of evidence based practice: A conceptual framework. Abstract with link to full-text (required free registration) retrieved July 10, 2007, from Rycroft-Malone, J. The PARIHS framework: A framework for guiding the implementation of evidence-based practice. Full-text (required free registration) retrieved July 10, 2007, from The proposed framework asks five questions to be considered for each unique situation: (2), 221—248.
The model also implements a set of applicability critieria: substantiating evidence, current practice, fit, and feasibility (Stetler, 2001).
The revised model continues to focus on a series of judgmental activities about the appropriateness, desirability, feasibility, and manner of using research findings in an individual's or group's practice.

Other models that focus on bridging research gaps can also be applied to a KT process.
Following are models identified by the NCDDR (2005) and Sudsawad (2007). Toward a comprehensive interdisciplinary model of health care research use. Abstract with link to fee-based full-text retrieved July 9, 2007, from The KTA process uses the word "action" rather than "practice" because it includes a wider range of users of knowledge (Graham et al. 14) After an examination of current terminology around KT the authors present the KTA process, beginning with the concept of knowledge creation, where knowledge moves through a funnel of inquiry and synthesis to become tools or products. S45077 Checked for plagiarism Yes Review by Single-blind Peer reviewer comments 3 Editor who approved publication: Professor Russell Taichman University of Michigan School of Nursing, Ann Arbor, MI, USA Background/purpose: Nurse managers (NMs) play an important role promoting evidence-based practice (EBP) on clinical units within hospitals.However, there is a dearth of research focused on NM perspectives about institutional contextual factors to support the goal of EBP on the clinical unit.For more information on individual methods and tools included in the review, please consult the authors/developers of the original resources.The Stetler model of evidence-based practice would help individual public health practitioners to use evidence in daily practice to inform program planning and implementation.Results: NMs perceived workplace culture, structure, and resources as facilitators or barriers to empowering nurses under their supervision to use EBP and drive change.
