Continuing education course: Finding the Evidence and Using It! - February 27th

Led by Pat Nellis, MBA, OTR/L and Kim Walker, OTD, OTR/L, this continuing education course will help participants develop skills for critically appraising and interpreting professional literature necessary for supporting evidence-based clinical practice. Evaluation of evidence will include both qualitative and quantitative studies. 

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • create a PICO question from a real life practice situation
  • effectively search databases
  • critically appraise the evidence, and
  • identify what and how to integrate evidence into the clinical decision-making process. 

This session has limited seats to allow for actual hands-on practice in searching. Participants are encouraged to come prepared to work on an actual clinical case of their own for the application portion.

Ranked as the Number One OT Program in the Nation
