Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

A survey of OTs found participants used EBP less than once in the previous eight weeks. The most supportive factors of EBP use were doctoral-level education and high self-reflection behavior. Organizational factors of time, access to articles, and organizational support were marginally supportive. Future research should focus on exploring how self-reflection behavior acts as a support to EBP and the construction of models that integrate reflective practice with EBP in practice.
