Evidence-based practice is the combination of research data, clinician expertise and patient preference. As the psychological therapies expand, we need to ensure that providers respect the evidence base for psychological treatment, and that practice-based evidence is used and coordinated in an efficient manner to shape effective healthcare. We believe it is important to set up a way of sharing best practice, and to involve service users and carers in this process.
Through this project, we aim to establish “evidence into practice” partnerships with research partners in a consolidated model of evidence-based practice. We also aim to support practice-based evidence and under-researched areas, and, to set up systems how to share best practice (e.g. via a PPN Subnetwork, via engaging with library and knowledge services, etc.).
