What fundamentals do clinicians, educators, and our clients and their families need to know about evidence-based practice (EBP)? This is the question that I asked myself before writing the introductory piece to this special edition of the Perspectives newsletter. I have chosen a frequently asked question format along with myths and resources to answer this question in an accessible way. Each of the subsequent contributions in this issue elaborate on selected issues raised in this introductory paper.
Evidence-based practice (EBP) is an approach to practice that is based on the integration of best and current research evidence with relevant stakeholder perspective s and clinical/educational expertise to inform decisions that are effective and efficient for a given client (Sackett, Richardson, Rosenberg, & Haynes, 1997; Schlosser, 2003; Schlosser & Raghavendra, in press).
