Evidence based practice (EBP) has now been a part of our profession for over 20 years. The term and methodology was conceived in 1992 and in more recent years has been challenged. It remains an important part of our practice and should be utilised on a daily basis. This is facilitated by the development of enabling tools however in many circumstances it remains difficult to implement due to barriers that continue to exist. One thing is for sure, we should all know about EBP, understand the concepts and appreciate these barriers and challenges. This course will guide you through the EBP process, directing you to many informative resources along the way.


Provide an overview of Evidence Based Practice and a detailed guide to using the methodology in your daily practice and reflection.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Overview of EBP
  2. Creating your clinical question
  3. Finding the evidence
  4. Critically appraising the evidence
  5. Applying the evidence to practice
  6. Evaluating performance
  7. The Future
  8. Quiz
