Evidence-Based Social Care - The Social Work Skills Series (Paperback)Geraldine MacDonald (author)
- Coming soon
Evidence-based practice denotes an approach to decision-making which is transparent, accountable, and based on a consideration of current best evidence about the effects of particular interventions on the welfare of individuals, groups and communities.
Introducing readers to the concept of evidence-based social care, this text shows how such an approach can help provide best quality services to users. Including an introduction to the key skills required of the evidence-based practitioner, the text also discusses the implications of such an approach for qualifying and post-qualifying training, with particular reference to social work.
Written in a clear and easy-to-follow style, each chapter begins with a statement of proposed learning objectives. The text incorporates examples of difficult issues as well as exercises and activities in order to encourage critical thinking and debate.
