In this issue of Perspectives, you will read four more applications of evidence-based practice (EBP) for TW (the woman who was introduced in issue 3) from master clinical researchers. These reports illustrate the four cornerstones of applying EBP:(a)research and theory,(b)practice wisdom, (c) person of the clinician, and (d) what the client brings to the process(Gilgun, 2005). EBP is more than “what can be measured, touched, and enumerated” (Hamer, 1999, p. 12). EBP is research-based evidence that informs, but does not replace, clinical expertise and accountability.
Seven master clinical researchers have shown us how they engage in EBP and conduct a “mindful practice”(Epstein,1999).A mindful practice implies a relationship between a client, caregivers, and clinician that extends beyond the treatment techniques. Mindful clinicians recognize their impact as clinicians in several aspects of a client’s life. Each of the clinicians whose work appeared in issues 3 and 4 approached assessment or treatment from a different perspective to illustrate the principles of EPB for TW(see Figure 1 on page 3 for a brief description of TW). In Issue 3 (October) Nidhi Mahendra addressed assessment from a multicultural perspective, and Rebecca Kelly described hearing screening following the World Health Organization International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (WHOICF, 2001).
