Sundell, Knut; Soydan, Haluk; Tengvald, Karin; Anttila, Sten
Research on Social Work Practice, v20 n6 p714-722 Nov 2010
This article presents an account of Sweden's Institute for Evidence-Based Social Work Practice (IMS), located in Stockholm, Sweden. The article places IMS in the context of making Swedish social care services less opinion-based and more evidence-based. The institute is an example of how policy-driven processes promote the use of evidence-based practices in this European nation. The article includes presentations of history, organization, and products of IMS, and concludes with comments on future opportunities and challenges.
