|(3 cr.) This course is a follow-up to OT 600, which
presented the foundations of evidence-based
practice. OT 604 faculty members present the
students with the steps of the evidence-based
practice continuum using journal entry format.
Students follow the steps using actual practice
case studies from their individual practice sites
and present the responses to each step in the
process to discover evidence to guide the practice
case questions. Peer interaction and feedback are
critical to the realistic development of evidence
to guide practice decisions. Each student also
participates in the writing of a systematic
review, clinical practice guidelines or an
evidence-based practice brief for the profession.
