'Evidence-based policy' and 'evidence-based practice' are described in this book as 'defining terms of our age', commonly used in health and many other sectors. Yet, as this collection also details, efforts to develop better healthcare must too often rely on an incomplete or poorly aligned evidence-base that does not properly capture the contextual complexities of health policy and service development. In the frontline of primary healthcare, such evidence into policy-and-service divides are particularly concerning. Policy-makers want and need evidence that addresses 'whole-of-service' and 'systems-wide' issues to do with state and national health reform agendas.
