Implementing Evidence-informed Practice: International Perspectives

Front Cover
Canadian Scholars’ Press, 2012 - Evidence-based social work - 241 pages
Implementing Evidence-Informed Practice: International Perspectives comprises sixteen original articles about developing strategies to integrate knowledge into policy and practice in order to:
  • determine if interventions will have the desired effect,
  • ensure that public money is spent efficiently, and
  • increase the likelihood that practitioners are intervening in the lives of others on the basis of the best available evidence.

Treatment outcomes, knowledge sharing, outcome evaluation methodology, early intervention, prevention, the development and sustaining of implementation teams, and the creation of instruments to measure implementation capacities across local, regional, and state/provincial levels are all addressed.
