Experience Based Practice

Experience Based Practice

Evidence based practices are prevention or treatment practices that are based on consistent scientific evidence demonstrating how treatment improves client service outcomes. Elements of the practice are standardized, replicable, and reliable. Practice is documented through research that also includes the history of an individual as a source of data collection. As a result of evidenced based practice, treatment is likely to be provided correctly the first time, which will increase client successes, sooner.
