Despite their potential impact on the quality of services and the positive perceptions of the clinicians, clinical practice guidelines (CPG) remain underused. The characteristic deemed the more likely to facilitate CPG implementation is the existence of Guidelines Implementation tools, or GItools.

Clinical practice guidelines for the rehabilitation of adult with moderate or severe traumatic brain injury have recently been produced in Québec. The objectives of this project are: 1) to create GI tools for 10 recommendations included in the GPC-TCC (pocket-card, video podcast, self-training modules and complementary tools such as list, algorithms, etc). 2) to disseminate the GItools in the clinical rehabilitation settings of Québec and 3) to evaluate the effectiveness of GItools to improve the clinicians knowledge and adherence to the recommendations of the GPC-TCC.

This project will be conducted under an integrated knowledge translation mode. The methodology of the project follow the steps of Gagliardi, and encompass eight steps: 1) the selection of 10 key-recommendations, 2) the production of 10 rapid review of the literature; 3) the production of ten series of four GItools prototypes; 4) the collaboration with clinicians leaders to produce the initial version of GItools; 5) the pilot-test with clinicians users and the production of the final version of the GItools; 6) the approbation of the final version of the GItools  7) the dissemination of the GItools to the potential users and 8) the evaluation of the effects of GItools on knowledge and practices of clinicians working in rehabilitation for the adults living with a traumatic brain injury.
