Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Practitioner understanding and use of evidence-based practice (EBP) is critical for quality, cost-effective OT services. This study used a modified Delphi method with two rounds of online questionnaires to develop a set of EBP competencies for OTs. The final list of competencies represented nine domains and encompassed a wide range of knowledge, skills, and behaviors related to OT practice.
