SOWK 3433: Social Work - Populations at Risk: Evidence Based Practice

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
