Evidence-Based Practice (EBP)
Evidence-based practice is the integration of:
- clinical expertise/expert opinion;
- external scientific evidence; and
- client/patient/caregiver perspectives.
When all three components of EBP are considered together, clinicians are able to make informed evidence-based decisions and provide high-quality services reflecting the interests, values, needs, and choices of individuals with communication disorders.
