Abstract

Background:
Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a client-centred, question-in-context driven process of evidence collection, collaboration, and critical reasoning to facilitate defensible healthcare decisions.
Aim:
In response to an identified lack of guidance tailored to student-placement supervisors, the aim of this study was to evaluate an EBP learning and assessment framework. The primary purpose was to assist placement supervisors to facilitate and assess EBP as part of their supervision of students on clinical placements.
Methods:
A draft framework and associated resources were developed, based on the scholarly EBP literature. Formative evaluation was then conducted, drawing on feedback from health academics, placement-experienced students, and placement supervisors, across multiple healthcare disciplines.
Results:
Respectful collaboration with academics, students, and supervisors during the development phase has resulted in a suite of user-friendly, high-impact resources. Subsequent stakeholder feedback indicates a range of benefits associated with the use of these resources.
Conclusions:
The EBP learning and assessment framework and associated resources evaluated in this study are suitable for widespread use, across healthcare disciplines. If utilised, they will facilitate a shared understanding between academics, students, and placement supervisors about the principles and processes involved in high-quality EBP and, consequently, maximise EBP engagement and its benefits.
