Implementing Evidence-Based Practice in Children’s Mental HealthDecember 11, 2005
Research evidence in children’s mental health is constantly evolving, as in many fields. The ongoing process of communicating and using the research evidence has been termed “evidence-based practice.”
This report focuses on implementing evidence-based practice. Active approaches (such as interactive events and educational outreach) are more effective than passive approaches (such as lectures or conferences). The experience of practitioners, children and families also needs to be taken into account.
