Evidence-based practice (EBP) is based on integrating critically appraised research results with the practitioner’s clinical expertise, and the client’s preferences, beliefs, and values. To promote EBP, AOTA has developed a number of resources to help members find and utilize clinically relevant literature to respond to both their clients’ needs and external demands for information from the scientific literature.
AOTA's Evidence Exchange is a central repository for Critically Appraised Papers (CAPs) and related resources. The Evidence Exchange includes opportunities for members to participate as CAP Submitters as well as CAP Reviewers on an ongoing basis.
The American Occupational Therapy Association's Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Resource Directory is an online service that links users to Internet sites related to the evidence-based practice of occupational therapy.
You must be an AOTA member to access the EBP Resource Directory.
