Proving our worth: making the case for evidence-based practice in Wales
Wednesday, 20 February 2013
RCSLT, Transport House, 1 Cathedral Road, Cardiff, CF11 9SB
In the current climate of austerity measures, the focus of this study day was on reinforcing the importance of outcomes and evidence-based practice to improve levels of service delivery. The day paid particular attention to this in light of the strategic direction in NHS Wales and the policy document Achieving Excellence.
With a combination of keynote speakers, presentations and interactive sessions the event provided an excellent CPD opportunity in addition to sharing best practice and new innovations.
After attending this event delegates were able to:
1. Have an awareness and understanding of the importance of demonstrating outcomes.
2. Put evidence-based practice as the focus of our clinical practice.
3. Access support to develop and measure outcomes across a range of SLT services.
4. Discuss ways of developing existing evidence base to support the development of innovative practice.
5. Inspire others to engage proactively in the development of hubs in Wales.
6. Apply current research to inform changes in clinical practice.
