Info pros as strategists for patient safety EIK improvement

Any thoughts here? Librarians have sensed the reality of the results reported below for years. How are they best translated to engage leadership (clinical and administrative) to bring librarians into safety work as partners in EIK (evidence, information and knowledge sharing) improvement -- both as expert searchers and strategists to minimize the latent failure of poor search results guiding decision making?

Gardois P, Calabrese R, Colombi N, et al. Effectiveness of bibliographic searches performed by paediatric residents and interns assisted by librarians. A randomised controlled trial. Health Info Libr J. 2011 Dec;28(4):273-84

Any outside the box thinking would be of value, as this story is not being translated as effectively as it could be.
