This module reviewed a number of topics and issues from our prior course related to research questions, the role of theory, locating empirical evidence, and analyzing the evidence. These topics were applied to understanding social work interventions, the theme of our current course. The new content in this module explored the COPES and PICO frameworks for developing practice questions, the role of theory and logic models in planning interventions, locating empirical evidence to inform practice (literature reviews, systematic reviews, scoping reviews, meta-analysis, and individual articles), and how to critically evaluate the evidence you have located. In addition, the final steps of the EBP process were introduced: selecting the intervention strategy, implementing the intervention, and monitoring/evaluating the intervention. This leads to our next modules: how to evaluate interventions.
