A Hybrid Model for Teaching and Practicing Evidence-Based Practice ASHA defines evidence-based practice (EBP) as a clinical decision-making process that fosters the integration of high-quality research evidence with clinician expertise and client preferences (ASHA, 2005a). As any reader of recent ASHA publications knows, discussions of EBP have increased dramatically (e.g., Apel & Self, 2003; Dollaghan, 2004; Gillam & Gillam, ... Article

ASHA defines evidence-based practice (EBP) as a clinical decision-making process that fosters the integration of high-quality research evidence with clinician expertise and client preferences (ASHA, 2005a). As any reader of recent ASHA publications knows, discussions of EBP have increased dramatically (e.g., Apel & Self, 2003; Dollaghan, 2004; Gillam & Gillam, 2006; Justice & Fey, 2004; also see the running tutorials by Patricia Hargrove in the Division 1 Perspectives). Not only are there informational articles on EBP, tutorials also exist for how to evaluate research and how to marry those evaluations with clinical expertise and the values and preferences of the clients we serve (e.g., Oppenheimer, Sieff, & Self, 2005). The focus and energy that ASHA and its members have placed on EBP points to its importance for clinical practice.
