Below are tools that can provide information for overcoming obstacles of Guideline implementation.
ADAPTE - ADAPTE is a website that provides multiple resources to organisations who are needing to produce quality guidelines in shorter times. The main idea behind rapid production of guidelines is to utilise existing guidelines and adapt them, thereby reducing duplication and enhancing efficiency in development and improve utilisation.
Guideline Implementability Appraisal - GLIA is a tool to appraise the implementability of clinical guidelines in the hope of identifying potential challenges to its implementation. GLIA is comprised of a series of questions that inquire about global aspects of a guideline's implementability and other dimensions of individual recommendations, such as exectuability, flexibility, and novelty or innovation.
Barriers to Implementation - This tool provides opportunities for stakeholders of evidence implementation to identify potential barriers that are likely to arise during the process of integrating evidence into practice. A range of factors have been highlighted as examples and stakeholders can use this tool to expand on these factors and identify new barriers relevant to their local contexts.
Overcoming Barriers Change - This tool provides opportunities for stakeholders of evidence implementation to identify targeted incentives or enablers to overcome identified barriers. A range of enabling strategies have been highlighted as examples and stakeholders can use this tool to expand on these factors and identify new barriers and targeted enablers relevant to their local contexts.
Stakeholder Identification - This tool provides opportunities to identify a range of stakeholders who are likely to be impacted by evidence implementation processes and outcomes. It is vitally important to identify, and engage early on, with key stakeholders as part of the process of evidence into practice.
A guide to the development, evaluation and implementation of clinical practice guidelines - This document, produced by the National Health and Medical Research Council, provides an overview of the development, evaluation and implementation process of clinical practice guidelines. While the document was produced in 1999, much of its content still holds true today.
Queensland Clinical Guidelines - This webpage was developed by the Queensland Government with a view to promote translating evidence into best clinical practice. This includes a Guideline Implementation Checklist which assists facilities and Hospital and Health Services to embed Queensland clinical guidelines in clinical practice and quality activities.
