You Chose Patient Preference!
Well, this is more than just patient preference- caregivers and family members are included, too. As a mother to a son who relies on a lot of therapists and doctors, I can’t even begin to express how happy it makes me that you really focus on the patient/caregiver needs! This is so important.
One thing that I’ve had to learn the hard way, however, is that patient/caregiver preference is not the only thing we should be relying on. If the patient’s preference comes from misinformation or maybe even a sense of pressure from the medical team or other well-meaning family members, then it can actually lead to worse outcomes sometimes. The patient’s preference can evolve when they have all of the information- it can even change if they have a different SLP or other medical provider!
I share my personal experiences with this in my upcoming 3-day workshop, along with so much important information to help you better identify and implement all three components of evidence-based practice instead of falling into the common trap of relying on just ONE component for most of your work.
We’re not the only ones guilty of this- physicians and other medical professionals are constantly needing to consider how to balance the patient’s preference with the other two components of EBP: research and clinical experience.
So how do we consistently include all each component of evidence-based practice in order to give our patients truly the best outcomes?
Find out with me August 30th through September 1st.
I invite you to my 6 hour ASHA CEU journey where you can learn the details of EBP and walk away with actionable items to grow your skills, improve your patients’ outcomes, and earn more respect among your interprofessional colleagues.
You can register now for $47.
Usually, 6 hours worth of ASHA CEUs is more expensive than that, but this isn’t about the money. I want to make these 3 days accessible and provide even MORE value than the cost itself.
Join me and hundreds of your colleagues as we come together to continue building what we build best: True evidence-based practice.
