EBPcentral & what we do

At EBPcentral, we are dedicated to delivering high-quality Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) continuing education courses tailored specifically for athletic trainers. In addition, we offer exceptional opportunities for sports medicine clinicians to explore and learn about new and innovative Evidence-Based Products shaping the industry.

EBP, a systematic approach to healthcare, involves the integration of the best available research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values. By utilizing the most up-to-date and reliable evidence, healthcare professionals can enhance patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs. This approach encompasses identifying pertinent research studies, critically appraising the quality and validity of the evidence, and utilizing this information to guide clinical decision-making. EBP serves as an indispensable tool for healthcare professionals, ensuring the delivery of optimal care to patients.

Our range of Evidence-Based Products provides valuable evidence and data to support informed decision-making, ensuring that practices and policies are grounded in research and proven outcomes. By leveraging these products, organizations and individuals can make well-informed decisions based on the latest and most reliable data available, leading to improved outcomes and enhanced effectiveness.

Evidence-Based Practice (EBP)

Evidence-Based Practice is the integration of:

  • Clinical Expertise
    • The knowledge, judgement, and critical reasoning acquired through your training and professional experiences
  • Best Current Scientific Evidence
    • The best available information gathered from the scientific literature (external evidence) and from data observations collected on your individual client (internal evidence)
  • Patient Values
    • The unique set of personal and cultural circumstances, values, priorities, and expectations identified by your client and their caregivers

When all three components of EBP are considered together, clinicians can make informed, evidence-based decisions and provide high-quality services reflecting the interests, values, needs, and choices of their patients.
