Evidence-based practice is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual clients (CEBM, Oxford). Having its origins in the fields of medicine and clinical epidemiology, EBP is now a growing part of speech and language sciences. The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the principles and methods of evidence-based clinical practice so that you can apply those methods to assessing and treating communication disorders in children and adults.
