Most clinical service providers would agree that engaging in evidence-based practice is a worth while endeavor. However, as is so often the case, there is not a seamless transition between theory and practice. Speech-language pathologists perceive many barriers to their participation in evidence-based practice, with insufficient time as the most frequently cited hindrance (Mullen, 2005; Zipoli & Kennedy, 2005). Thus, to encourage overburdened clinicians to remain attuned to the latest evidence-based research in their respective areas, there needs to be an efficient process for identifying high-quality research to inform the clinical decision making process. Experts have suggested that clinicians focus their time on “high yield” sources, such as systematic reviews and internet accessible evidence-based medicine resources (Dollaghan,2004a,b;Sackett,Straus, Richardson, Rosenberg, & Haynes, 2000).
