Outer settingAlthough external policies proposed that practitioners implement evidence-based practices, the execution of the policies was not good, and the government funding was insufficient; there was low patient compliance with the practitioners’ EBPH practices.
Individual characteristicsThere was a lack of time and energy to practice EBPH and low awareness and identification of EBPH.
Implementation processThere was no clear process for EBPH implementation.
