Is it True

When we look at the hierchy of evidence we see that benchmarking with what others do and copying “best practices” are probably included in the lowest two levels.

While no one has the time to “reinvent the wheel” copying what seems to be successful in other settings may not actually be evidenced based.  I wonder how many articles at their time of their publishing already contain outdated information. How many initiatives described in the literature are dead by the time they are published? Then the rest of the hospitail world follows suit and when they fail, they blame their staff or their finances when in most cases, the initiative was not evidence based and only succeded while there was organizational focus.
