Evidence-Based Practice & Practice-Based Evidence
Presented by Nan Ratner
Discussions about evidence-based practice often culminate in claims that there is one best approach to treatment of a particular type of client, or that we lack appropriate evidence or that clinicians lack access to what evidence we have.
In this presentation, in an effort to frame these claims more positively, Nan Bernstein Ratner, Ed.D., argues that there is both research and common-sense evidence that these claims are wrong. She also suggests that in the debate about best practices in fluency treatment, there is indeed a need to search out and integrate many sources of evidence that either support our approach to a case or suggest a need for reconsideration, adjustment, or change.
Many options exist to find and use this evidence, and many more await implementation either in the clinic or in our research undertakings.
This 55 minute talk provides a range of options for both clinical researchers and practicing clinicians who want to find, use and integrate evidence of treatment effectiveness.
Dr. Ratner suggests some fruitful ways to frame further discussions on the topics of evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence to answer commonly posed questions about the effectiveness of what clinicians do.
