Evidence Based Practice: Bridging the gap from theory to practice (CHE 719)Healthcare professionals, including physical therapists and occupational therapists, must keep up to date with the large amounts of biomedical literature produced each year to engage in professional best practices. To stay current, healthcare professionals need to learn evidence-based practice (EBP) and the corresponding information literacy skills necessary to effectively engage in EBP. The process of evidence-based practice (EBP) guides clinicians in the integration of individual clinical expertise, patient values and expectations, and the best available evidence. The purpose of this course is to provide a perspective to assist clinicians in formulating foreground questions, searching for the best available evidence, and determining validity of results in studies of interventions. The program content is directly related to clinical practice, management and/or education of physical therapists, occupational therapists, and COTA/ PTAs, and will include hand-on experience in computer searches using the continuing education computer lab. Contact hours for PT’s and OT’s. Open to professionals. For more information, call 301-784-5526.
