Using an Evidence-Based Program Planning Model in a Macro Practice Course
Roberts-DeGennaro, Maria
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v30 n1 p46-63 2010
A graduate macro practice foundation course was modified to incorporate curriculum content on the paradigm of evidence-based (informed) practice. The author developed an Evidence-Based Program Planning Model that was used as the framework for teaching this paradigm. Students learned to search and appraise the evidence to answer a practice question, use evidence to select a "best" practice, assess the transportability and fidelity issues in implementing the practice in a community or organizational setting, and design a program based on the best practice. Desired outcome from this course is that students will be motivated to engage in a lifetime of learning-by-inquiry. (Contains 1 figure.)
