THE ROLE, MEANING, AND PURPOSE OF EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES TRAINING
WHAT IS EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES (EBP)
EBP refers to using the best available evidence for decision-making and providing efficient and effective care. Evidence-based practice is a conscientious, problem-solving approach to clinical or faith-based practice that incorporates the best evidence from well-designed studies, patient/client values and preferences, and a Practitioner's expertise in making decisions about a patient's care. It is a method by which Practitioners across the healthcare and faith-based professions review and assess the most current, highest-quality research to inform their delivery of care. Although there is no precise standard for what constitutes evidence-based practice in specialty training, the approach consists of three main components and five basic steps.
Best External Evidence
Evaluate and implement the most current, clinically or faith-based soul-care centered relevant, and scientifically sound research.
Individual Clinical or Faith-Based/Spiritual Expertise
Draw on your personal experience of what has worked and not worked in your clinical or faith-based/spiritual practice.
Client/Patient Values and Expectations
Consider and value the preferences of your individual client/patients. Levels of evidence in both healthcare and/or faith-based/spiritual expertise research can be grouped into four categories according to how credible the information is. These four categories, ranging from the most credible to the least includes.

Build more quality care teams and implement impactful study modules that are state-wide acceptable for most workplace required credentials, possible college prerequisite studies credits approval and clergy best practices.
