ATRN 7120 - Evidence-Based Practice

3 credit hours

This course is designed to enable the athletic trainer’s clinical decision-making process in a manner that integrates clinical experience, patient values, and the best available evidence. It is also intended to build on entry-level evidence-based practice courses with the use of informatics and technology to access the medical literature. The course will cover advanced topics related to the EBP process, framing clinical questions to enhance clinical decision-making, searching the literature, critical appraisal, integration and evaluation of the evidence, grading levels of evidence and strength of recommendations, patient values, and statistical terminology related to EBP. Course objectives will be achieved through readings, multi-media presentations, discussions, presentations, and individual and/or group assignments. * Course may be transferable if completed prior to the DAT program as a part of ATSU’s Master of Science in Athletic Training (M) or the Certificate in Clinical Decision Making in Athletic (C). Please see the Advanced Standing section of the DAT program section.
