This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: To assess the effects of implementation interventions for promoting the uptake of evidence-based recommendations in acute stroke unit environments. Secondary objectives are to describe any factors that may modify the effect of implementation interventions; determine factors that may influence the uptake of recommendations in acute stroke units; and determine if single or multifaceted intervention strategies (two or more interventions) are more effective in improving uptake of evidence, patient outcomes, system outcomes or professionals' knowledge, attitudes or intentions in this setting.
