Evidence-Based Practice isn’t about knowing more.
It doesn’t matter which health profession you are in. If you are a doctor or a trainer or a health writer, you are all taught to use every tool available to ensure that you’re doing what’s best.
But the message you receive is to ignore your experience in favour of ‘the evidence’.
You feel like you don’t have the tools to leverage research. You’re led to believe this is a knowledge problem.
That’s because you were tested like it’s a knowledge problem.
But it’s not a knowledge problem. It’s a skill problem. That’s why you can pass the test, but still believe you’re deficient.
The lie you are fed is the story you believe.
Getting better at evaluating research means changing the story you believe.
