Evidence-Informed Practice

What is Evidence-Informed Practice?

Evidence-informed practice, sometimes called evidence-based practice, is a client-centred approach to clinical decision making. It’s a way to solve problems by integrating the best available research evidence with the clinician’s experience, the client’s preferences and values, and the organizational and cultural context.1,2,3,4,5

Evidence-informed practice helps clinicians be more effective, efficient, and accountable, while achieving better outcomes for clients.2

Given the importance of their work, clinicians are expected and seek to ensure that their approach to client screening, assessment, and treatment is grounded in an understanding of what has been shown to be effective.1,2,3,4,5
