SOWK 3833: Social Work - Geriatrics: Evidence Based Practice

Welcome to this guide.

Evidence Based Practice

National Association of Social Work   "EBP is a process in which the practitioner combines well-researched interventions with clinical experience, ethics, client preferences, and culture to guide and inform the delivery of treatments and services."  

Sources for evidence based practice include peer-reviewed journal articles, data sets, websites, and books.   These keywords are often useful for finding articles with evidence based information:

  • best practices                 clinical trials                              guidelines 
  • interventions                   literature review                        qualitative research
  • quantitative research      randomized controlled trial       systematic review
