The inconsistent implementation of evidence-based practice has become a significant concern in the traumatic stress field. The European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS) has played a major role in highlighting this issue and has contributed to a number of European initiatives to improve dissemination and implementation. Key initiatives include the introduction of the ESTSS General Certificate in Psychotrauma Psychotraumatology and the European Network for Traumatic Stress (TENTS); these are discussed in this paper.Keywords: trauma; PTSD; evidence-based; dissemination; implementation(Published: 6 June 2013)Citation:European Journal of Psychotraumatology 2013, 4: 21252 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/ejpt.v4i0.21252This paper is part of the thematic cluster The Past Presidents’ Reviews - 20 years of European Psychotraumatology.
