Putting EBP into Clinical Practice
0.75 BOC Approved Clinical Home Study EBP CEU's
COST: $ 29.99 - EXPIRATION DATE: 2018-12-31
In recent years, evidence-based practice has been brought forward in the profession of Athletic Training. However, this is not a new concept to health care. Steves and Hootman discusses the importance of evidence-based practice in Athletic Training and the steps necessary for incorporating it into the profession. With the addition of evidence-based practice competencies into Athletic Training education at the professional and post-professional levels, we are reaching Athletic Training students with the necessary information on evidence-based medicine.
However, there remains a gap in knowledge in this area in clinicians who may have not had a strong foundation in evidence-based practice during their schooling. Athletic Training clinicians not associated with an education program demonstrate lower perceived importance scores about evidence-based practice. They also had lower knowledge scores when compared to Athletic Training educators and students at the professional and post-professional levels. Many clinicians also believe there are significant barriers to implementing evidence-based practice into their clinical practice. These barriers include lack of time, lack of EBP mentors, and lack of knowledge.
This course is designed to encourage participants to continue their understanding of, and further their knowledge in, evidence-based practice. The presentation introduces the five steps of EBP, discusses how to formulate PICO questions, and demonstrates the use of clinical prediction rules and patient reported outcomes in clinical practice. In addition, the presentation helps dispel common myths about EBP.
This course fulfills the EBP BOC CEU requirement for Athletic Trainers.
