One of the barriers regarding evidence-informed decision making is the gap between the needs of policy makers and the ways researchers present evidence. This pilot study evaluates the barriers and facilitators to the implementation of a tool to enhance transparent and unambiguous communication on scientific evidence by knowledge workers. Therefore, mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative) were applied. The results indicate that to promote successful implementation of such a tool, efforts should be undertaken to provide time and guidance on how to adapt routines and on how to apply the tool to various products.
