We also saw a perceptible shift by part of the scholarship and practice toward evidence-informed (as opposed to evidence-based) decisionmaking (Head 2015) correcting the original approach by recognizing that the limited ascertained impact of EBDM
on the policy field can be explained by different information needs and practices of public organizations.
Challenges Relating to EBDM
in Research and Education
and CQI processes into planning and budgeting
The need for organizational change and managerial support was cited as another significant barrier to using EBDM
as this lack of support influenced internal factors like funding, training, and time [10, 11, 38, 45, 47, 50, 51].
Translating evidence-based decision making into practice: EBDM
concepts and finding the evidence.
The evidence from each literature source was summarized and the strength of evidence appraised as part of the third step of the EBDM
Scientific findings from research studies are a piece of the EBDM
puzzle; however, they constitute only one piece.
Therefore, this workshop is designed to introduce participants to basic EBDM
concepts and skills, and clinical decision support (CDS) resources that can be used in education and practice through using case scenarios.
is a problem-solving approach to the delivery of care that incorporates the best evidence from well-designed studies in combination with a clinician's expertise and patient preferences and values.
was a new topic for Condon, despite her having stayed up-to-date on her continuing education course requirements.
As more faculty integrate EBDM
methodology into their courses, it is more likely that students will develop the skills necessary to become self-directed lifelong learners who "have learned how to learn.
The process of evaluating the merit and the utility of the research is the underlying premise of evidence-based decision making (EBDM
) and is one of the first steps identified in the EBDM
Model for Dental Hygiene.
