Evidence-based practices

There are different definitions of evidence-based practices. At a minimum they are interventions that show consistent evidence of being related to preferred outcomes based on best available evidence. The American Psychology Association defines evidence-based practices as the integration of the best available research with expertise in the context of patient characteristics, culture, and preferences. This definition parallels with the definition of the Institute of Medicine as adapted from Sackett et al. (2000) that states: evidence-based practice is the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values
