Incorporating Evidence-Based Practice into Instruction

Educating students about the use of evidence-based practice (EBP) to guide clinical, educational, and professional decision-making can be difficult to implement. However, given the goal of most pre-professional programs is to instruct students on how to use evidence to guide assessment, instruction/ intervention, and/or professional decision-making, faculty can and should include a variety of EBP strategies into their instruction to help students as they transition to the profession.

This presentation will highlight how faculty, including adjunct faculty and preceptors, may accomplish this task of infusing EBP principles into their instructional activities.
