Evidence-Based Practice Integration Tool
Research needs practitioners in order for it be relevant. Pettus-Davis, Grady, Cuddeback, and Scheyett (2011) state that “the practitioner is the vehicle through which an intervention is translated from a description in a book or an article to an active process with a client.”
For this to happen, researchers must present information clearly and practitioners must be able to evaluate the research and determine if it’s relevant to an individual consumer.
You can follow 4 steps to integrate EBP into VR practice:
- Formulate well-defined, answerable questions
- Seek the best evidence available to answer your questions
- Critically evaluate the evidence
- Apply the evidence to your individual consumer
The following form is a tool you can use to rate the relevance of research on your individual consumer.
