Evidence to practice commentary. Sustaining changes to clinical practice at person, team, and organizational levels.Physical & Occupational Therapy in Pediatrics (2021)
Aim: The purpose of this evidence-to-practice commentary is to provide strategies for sustaining solution-focused coaching (SFC) training outcomes and changes to clinical practice at person, team, and organizational levels.
Methods: In the original study of focus, the research team conducted qualitative interviews with 13 clinical service providers 6 months after completing 2 days of SFC training and used a thematic analysis to explore the benefits and challenges of implementing a SFC approach.
Results: The findings indicated that clinicians found the SFC training to be effective and valuable to practice. Additionally, challenges and barriers to clinical adaptation were reported.
Conclusion: Knowledge mobilization can be supported by providing ongoing, follow-up opportunities to learn and practice solution-focused coaching across a variety of contexts. Cross-discipline professional learning opportunities that include leadership and non-clinical staff result in shared awareness, common language, and value of solution-focused coaching as a communication framework that can be implemented across an organization.
