The article discusses the use of knowledge which can be instrumental, conceptual or convincing. It states that even though using knowledge is important, the effect of its use on results associated to systems, providers, and patients are the greatest. Moreover, the strategies to evaluate execution of knowledge should utilize expressed and rigid methods and regard qualitative as well as quantitative methodologies.
