Do the words “evidence-based practice” make you squirm with confusion or irritation? When someone describes their psychiatric rehabilitation services as “evidence-based” are you embarrassed to ask why? This webinar will empower participants to become more confident consumers of evidence. We will demystify the terms evidence-based practice, evidence-based medicine, and look under the hood to see how services are declared evidence-based. We will use real-world examples to help you think critically about evidence and to become more comfortable asking questions. We will also explore how recovery concepts intersect with the principles of evidence-based medicine and promote choice.
