Incorporating Foundational Evidence-Based Practice Concepts and Skills across an Athletic Training Education Program
Jutte, Lisa S.; Walker, Stacy E.
Athletic Training Education Journal, v5 n3 p119-125 Jul-Sep 2010
Objective: The purpose of this article is to provide an example of how to develop and implement an evidence-based practice (EBP) concepts and skills plan in an athletic training education program (ATEP). Background: Evidence-based practice is an integral part of medical practice today. As stated in the "Athletic Training Educational Competencies 4th edition", athletic training educators are expected to develop their students' abilities to engage in EBP. However, foundational concepts and skills are needed to effectively practice EBP. Description: To eliminate redundancy and better prepare our students for EBP, a plan based on incorporating foundational concepts and skills concepts in small, sequential doses in our ATEP was devised and implemented. Clinical Advantage(s): Exposure to foundational EBP concepts and skills is necessary for students to actively engage in EBP. Conclusion(s): Despite the challenges for both students and faculty, the plan ensures we expose our students to EBP concepts and skills, therefore better enabling them to engage in EBP.
