Journal clubs have been operating in various formats for over 100 years in the medical field. Journal clubs aim to promote effective knowledge transfer of medical evidence to clinicians and subsequent uptake into the clinical setting. Clinician awareness, agreement, adoption and adherence of evidence may all act as barriers when translating high quality evidence into practice. This chapter will provide a commentary on the use of journal clubs in knowledge transfer and also proposes a method of utilizing journal clubs as complex interventions as a strategy to translate evidence into practice effectively.
