Towards an Understanding of Evidence-Based Practice
Digennaro Reed, Florence D.; Reed, Derek D.
Journal of Early and Intensive Behavior Intervention, v5 n2 p20-29 2008
The past two decades have seen a rise in the use of the term "evidence-based practice" and a simultaneous increase in the variations in its definition and evaluation. Subsequently, this rise in interest for evidence-based practices has become a double-edged sword for practitioners--that is, while there are a number of interpretations on the definition of the term "evidence-based practice," these numerous contradictory interpretations may actually impede the ethical application of empirically-supported treatments. The general aim of the present paper is to offer the reader an overview of the current state of affairs of the evidence-based practice literature which will culminate into areas for future research and professional debate. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
