Select an Evidence-based Practice - Description

You are here

The first step is to identify the problem or need.

Many provider organizations and individual clinicians decide to implement a particular evidence-based practice (EBP), whether because a training exposed them to it, or they feel compelled to “do something” to respond to various pressures from funders and regulators.

Before choosing a particular EBP you should:

  • identify the problem or need
  • identify the current processes that are causing the problem
  • identify the desired outcome after implementing the EBP

Answering these questions will help guide you in choosing the most appropriate EBP for your agency.
