This new King's Fund programme for Promoting Action on Clinical Effectiveness was set up late last year as a pathfinder programme for successful implementation of evidence-based practice in the NHS. The first part of the programme involves 16 projects around the UK - each designed to use research-based information to improve services to patients. These 16 projects are being selected from applications from Health Authorities and Trusts, and will run for two years.

An important second element of the programme is the creation of the PACE Network. The aim is to provide links between people interested in the promotion of evidence-based practice. The Network will be open to all disciplines and functions - practitioners, managers, researchers and economists. Discussion days to share ideas, experiences and problems, will be held around the UK, and focus on different issues.

Membership is free for the first year with a modest renewal fee planned thereafter. Participation in discussion days will be offered to Network members at a preferential rate.
