Chapter 8 Putting Evidence-Based Practice Into Practice
What Evidence-Based Practice is NOTA How to do it practice manual
An inherently oppressive or conservative approach to practice
What Evidence-Based Practice ISProviding clients with straight answers to commonsense questions and using that information to negotiate an intervention plan with them.
The 3 defining characteristics:The conscientious, explicit and judicious use of best evidence (Sackett, et al.).The use of clinical judgment. The integration of best evidence with client values and preferences.
Steps in Evidence-Based PracticeConvert your practice problem into an answerable question.
Locate the best available evidence with which to answer that question.
Together with your client, critically appraise the evidence.
Use your clinical judgment and your clients preferences to apply that evidence to the present circumstance.
Evaluate the performance of your intervention according to the objectives you and your client had set out.
Converting Evidence into PracticeAt you work through Steps 2 4 (previous slide), consider these questions:
Is this case so different from those in the literature that I cant apply the results?
Am I so different from the professionals in the literature that I cant administer the intervention?
Is the intervention feasible in our setting?
What are the potential benefits and harms to the client(s)?
How are the clients values relevant to the intervention and/or the outcome?
In view of your answers to these 5 questions, does the intervention need to be modified?
