  • Reviews the literature on EBP for each topic and covers several different treatment types for clinical implementation
  • Uses multiple scientific methodologies as well as professional resources, including consensus and expert panels, state and insurance practice guidelines, randomized controlled trials, single subject experimental designs, meta-analyses, and Cochrane reviews to establish evidence base
