What is Evidence Based Practice (EBP)?
"The conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients."
What is evidence?
Phase I: Expert opinion, case reports
Phase II: Cohort, studies and controls
Phase III: Randomized controlled trials
What are the 3 Evidence-based clinical recommendations?
1. Standard: High degree of certainty based on Class I or very strong Class II studies
2. Guideline: Moderate degree of certainty based on Class II or strong consensus from Class III
3. Option: Evidence is inconclusive (i.e., conflicting, expert opinion)
What should outcomes provide?
Outcomes should provide the evidence which should lead to beliefs about intervention, which should drive practical, clinical decisions.
But Clinical decisions must encompass more than beliefs. Decisions involve assessing whether the availiable-data apply to a particular client
When does evidence effect practice?
Evidence only affects practice if it changes the clinician's beliefs and behaviors
