Indeed. What is equally, if not more important, and complementary to what the authors propose, is to support transdisciplinary communication frameworks, thereby promoting collective understanding of healthcare providers needs and ways of meeting those needs, and advocacy among all stakeholders with an interest in the progressive realisation of universal access to evidence-based health care. The strongest and most sustainable change is that emerging from all those working in the system, rather than that which is devised and imposed by researchers and policymakers.
