||Evidence-Based Practice: What's its Relationship to Experience?
Surely, by now, you have heard someone bark, “It doesn’t matter what you think or what your experience is. We do evidence-based practice here!”
The words used in this proclamation can vary: Experience, expert opinion, clinical skills, judgment. But a singular message seems loud and clear: We need to use evidence, not expertise, to manage client situations. Evidence-based practice has been around since 1992 (some would argue, even earlier.) And, it’s here to stay.
The question, though, is about expertise. In the accompanying article, Wieten raises two interesting questions: Is expertise evidence? If not, what is it good for, if anything?
Here you’ll get an overview of the relationship between evidence and expertise, and how those relate to management in clinical practice. The goal of this program is to use three different models to explain the role of expertise in evidence-based practice.
