 Abstract: Evidence–based practice (EBP) is a buzzword in public administration. Welfare services are under pressure and demand for knowledge about what works in welfare practices has intensified. However, production of knowledge about welfare service effects does not ensure actual use. Focusing on transfer, implementation and utilization of evidence–based knowledge from research to practice in the field of municipal social work on organizational and staff level, this thesis identifies factors that may negatively or positively affect possibilities for putting evidence into practice in the area of socially endangered children. Data triangulation is used through the conduct of a random sample survey measuring self-reported EBP among members of the Danish Association of Social Workers, three interviews with experts representing the field of social research and the National Board of Welfare, and a case study of five interviews on the use of evidence–based programs in Herning Municipality. Perspectives on professional and street-level bureaucracy on the staff level and theories on implementation of initiatives and evidence transfer and use on the organizational level are used to operationalize hypotheses and guide analyses. Two definitions of EBP; a bottom-up definition focusing on individual appraisal of evidence–based knowledge and a top-down perception relating EBP to the use of evidence–based programs, are used. The thesis concludes that survey respondents report a higher degree of EBP use than hypothesized, a positive attitude and top-down perception of EBP. However, respondents tend to choose own or collegial experience over consulting evidence literature and insufficient organizational settings are identified as factors inhibiting EBP. On the organizational level, the construct and scientific traditions of social work education and professional practice in Denmark are identified as possible inhibiting factors for increasing EBP. The thesis concludes that educational advances and the National Board of Welfare acting as a broker agency may promote a better connection between evidence–based research and practice. A focus on implementation, management, investment and promotion of staff ownership are among the initiatives proposed to further EBP in the field of socially endangered children to pave the way for increasing positive, intended impact of welfare services.
