Gromoske, Andrea N.; Berger, Lisa K.
Research on Social Work Practice, v27 n6 p676-682 Oct 2017
Objective: To replicate the results of Parrish and Rubin's continuing education workshop in the evidence-based practice (EBP) process utilizing different workshop facilitators with participants in a different geographic location. Methods: We used a replicated, one-group pretest-posttest design with 3-month follow-up to evaluate the effectiveness of a 7-hr, continuing education workshop. Social workers' (N = 45) knowledge of, attitudes toward, views of feasibility, intentions to use, and current use of the EBP process were assessed. Results: Three of four cohorts of participants showed significant improvement from pretest to posttest in the overall measure of the EBP process (p < 0.05). Participants' scores significantly improved over time regarding their familiarity with, attitudes about, and intentions to use and current use of the EBP process (p < 0.001). Conclusions: Parrish and Rubin's continuing education workshop in the EBP process appears to be an effective means to train social workers in the EBP process.
