Abstract How can we persuade clinicians to adopt proven practices? Education, incentives, feedback, social marketing, and various other change strategies have inconsistent and unpredictable effects. We propose a theoretical framework that can provide a reliable basis for selecting effective change strategies. We divide clinicians into 4 categories on the basis of their responses to new information about the effectiveness of clinical strategies. We similarly divide the universe of practice change strategies into knowledge-oriented and behavior-oriented methods. We then show why specific combinations of these strategies are likely to be consistently effective for each of the 4 categories of clinicians.
