“There is a danger that the continuing discovery of the importance of tacit knowledge will lead some people to argue on ideological grounds that it should replace evidence-based practice. My own view is the opposite, that we should seek to expand evidence-based practice but not suffer from any delusions about how far it will take us nor lose awareness of just how much interpretation of guidelines may be needed when making decisions about individual cases.” – Michael Eraut, 2000.
