As clinical supervisors, we are challenged to ask ourselves, “Why am I choosing to use the procedures and protocols I use in clinical practice?” When audiology student clinicians ask about our selection of procedures and protocols, how do we respond? Are we making choices because of a recommendation from a respected colleague or textbook, or because of time efficiency? Can and should we base our clinical decisions on firmer ground, and what is that firmer ground? ASHA has made a commitment to establishing clinical decision making based on evidence rather than the words of others or time efficiency. Evidence-based practice (EBP) stems from the following: (a) findings from high-quality clinical research studies, (b) a clinician’s ability to identify, evaluate, and integrate research in the clinical setting, and (c) a client’s unique characteristics and needs (ASHA, 2005).
