This page is designed to answer the following questions:
- 6.2 Apply evidence-based practice in your practice (Level 4 Diploma in Adult Care, Personal development in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings)
- 6.3 Evaluate use of evidence-based practice in own setting (Level 4 Diploma in Adult Care, Personal development in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings)
NOTE: Although this page has been marked as complete, it has not yet been peer-reviewed or quality-assured, therefore it should be considered a ‘first draft‘ and any information should be fact-checked independently.
For these two assessment criteria, you will need to demonstrate that you are able to apply and evaluate evidence-based practice in your own setting.
You will need to think about times when you have made decisions or taken actions based on the evidence you had available at the time.
For example, you may request feedback from service users about your performance by giving them a short survey to fill in. The results may indicate that you always do a great job but you always seem to be rushed so service users do not feel they can disturb you. This evidence, combined with the requirement to provide person-centred care (as evidenced in CQC’s Fundamental standards and regulations) may be used to change how you manage your time or be a justification for your manager to reduce your workload.
