OT*640 - Directed Study in Evidence-Based Practice

(3 cr.) Students learn the steps of the evidence-based practice continuum. Each student follows the steps using actual practice case studies from his/her individual practice sites and presents the responses to each step in the process to discover evidence to guide the practice case questions. Peer interaction and feedback is critical to the realistic development of evidence to guide practice decisions. A major assignment is to have each student participate in the writing of a systematic review or an evidence-based practice brief for the profession. Students complete a needs assessment of a particular site or practice area as well. Prerequisite: OT 654., Every Year, Spring
