This project (SPIDER) consists of 5 members, from the Czech Republic (Applicant organisation), Portugal, the United Kingdom, Romania, and Spain

The SPIDER project is focused on improving the skills and qualifications of European project partners in EBHC and critical thinking, especially in the translation/implementation and utilization of evidence in healthcare clinical practice.

The core idea of the project is to support cooperation and exchange of know-how within the unique Evidence-Based Clinical Fellowship Program (EBCFP) context.
Professionals in healthcare across Europe need to improve their experience and skills with the implementation of the research evidence into their practice. It is especially important in this era when praxis in some healthcare fields lags more than 15-years behind the science.
The coordinator of this project from the Czech Republic is, one of few institutions in Europe who has trainers qualified to deliver the unique EBCFP, which was developed by experts from the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Adelaide, Australia. JBI is a world leader in the field of EBHC, having developed unique EBCFP.

The key objective of this project is to decrease the gap between research and practice in healthcare and support the international cooperation of professionals in healthcare. The project aims to support the development, transfer, and implementation of innovative practice.

The main direct impact of the project will be on the project participants' enhancement of professional skills, enhancement of academics, social and economic benefits, and networking. The indirect will be provided by the BPIPs, which have a significant potential to innovate current healthcare practice and thus to maintain the more effective and cost-effective practice, which will benefit patients/clients and reduce the redundant economic burden of healthcare.

To disseminate the project outcomes, a dissemination plan will be implemented. The plan will comprise four different lines of actions: educational, dissemination, clinical dissemination, online dissemination /internet/, and press and it will give clear measures and priorities of how to spread the findings and results elaborated by the project to the target public (local, regional, national, European and international).
One of the important outcomes of the project will be to develop closer cooperation among European EBHC into strong European consortia, to disseminate and implement EBHC in terms of evidence translation into practice.
