Evidence-Based Practice

What is it & what do we do with it?

Barrett Johnson

CWDA Child Welfare Conference

Monterey, CA

May 29th, 2008


What do we think ebp means l.jpg

What do we think EBP means?


Some definitions l.jpg

Some Definitions:

EBP “is the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and [client] values”

Sackett, Straus, Richardson, Rosenberg & Haynes (2000). Evidence-Based Medicine: How to practice and teach EBM (2nd ed.)

“It is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decision about the care of individual [clients]”

Sackett, et al. (1997)

Definitions, cont.

Gilgun’s 4 ‘Cornerstones’ of EBP:

  • Research and Theory

  • Practice wisdom, or what we and other professionals have leaned from our clients

  • The person of the practitioner (personal assumptions, values, biases and world views)

  • What clients bring to the situation

    Gilgun, J.F. (2005). The four cornerstones of evidence-based practice in social work. Research on Social Work Practice, 15(1).

Definitions, Cont.

Practice that is informed and ‘mindful’ of:

  • Best available research evidence;

  • Best Clinical Experience;

  • Client values and preferences.


Evidence based practice vs evidence based interventions treatments l.jpg

Evidence-Based Practice vs Evidence-Based Interventions/Treatments

  • Evidence-Based Interventions or Treatments refer to “the interventions or techniques (e.g. cognitive therapy for depression, exposure therapy for anxiety) that have produced therapeutic change in controlled trials.”

    Kazden, A. (2008). Evidence-based treatment and practice. American Psychologist, 63 (3) p. 147.


Evidence based interventions treatments l.jpg

Evidence-Based Interventions/ Treatments

  • Almost all of the evidence in CWS falls under this category

  • Not what the child welfare worker does, but what other people do.

2 aspects to consider l.jpg

2 Aspects to Consider:

  • Building evidence

  • Applying/translating the evidence that we have to practice


Building evidence l.jpg

Building Evidence


Building evidence the research and training network l.jpg

Building Evidence:The Research and Training Network

Results so far:

  • Four statewide symposia

  • Established Research Agenda that has been adopted by CWDA, CalSWEC and CFPIC

  • Aligned CalSWEC’s research and development grants to the agenda

  • REVISED Agenda currently under review


Building evidence discussions l.jpg

Building Evidence Discussions

Divide into Safety, Permanence and Well-being:

  • Review the proposed Agenda

  • Which are most important to you?

  • Why?

  • How might you think about studying this?


Translating evidence into practice l.jpg

Translating Evidence into Practice


Translating evidence what we know l.jpg

Translating Evidence: What we know

  • Most EB Interventions are not implemented

  • We have only begun to look at creating an atmosphere in the workplace for Evidence-Based Practice

  • The organizational Culture and Climate influence both of these things


Translating evidence some definitions l.jpg

Translating Evidence: Some Definitions

Organizational Culture

  • “the way things are done around here”

  • The shared norms, beliefs and behavioral expectations that drive behavior and communicate what is valued in an organization

    Summary of definitions from:

    Hemelgarn, Glisson and James. (2006) Organizational culture and climate: implications for services and interventions research. Clinical Psychology: Science and Practice. 13(1).


Translating evidence some definitions17 l.jpg

Translating Evidence: Some Definitions

Organizational Climate

  • “How it feels to work here”

  • The agreed upon (i.e. not just individual) perception of the psychological impact of the work environment

    Summary of definitions from:

    Hemelgarn, Glisson and James. (2006) Organizational culture and climate: implications for services and interventions research. Clinical Psychology: Science and Practice. 13(1).


Translating evidence discussions l.jpg

Translating Evidence Discussions

Divide into groups:

  • Review the definitions of culture and climate

  • What is the current culture of the CWS agency about EBP? About EB Interventions?

  • What could you do to change this?

  • How might the organizational climate influence attitudes toward EBP/EB I?

  • How might you change this?
