Consensus reports providing guidelines designed to alter clinical practice are being disseminated with increasing frequency by professional associations, the government, and voluntary health agencies. The purpose of this study was to examine nurses' perceptions of consensus reports that contain recommendations designed to alter clinical practice, including the extent to which consensus reports offer relative advantage over other more traditional sources of practice-related information. Strategies for encouraging the use of consensus reports are discussed.
