Evidence-based practice (EBP) strategies have been used in the field of medicine for many years; however, it has only been within the last few years that speech-language pathologists (SLP) have adopted these strategies as a means of guiding clinical decision making. Although there are diverse definitions of EBP, its use within the field has been defined as an approach to clinical decision making using the best evidence available, based on research findings, professional judgment, and consultation with the patient to decide upon the most appropriate treatment approach (Yorkston et al., 2001). ASHA has defined practice guidelines as part of their preferred practice patterns (2004), and EBP has been identified as a 2006 ASHA Focused Initiative. Providing useful, up-to-date clinical resources to affiliates was identified as the number one issue for Division 2’s Clinical Committee during the March strategic planning meeting.
