This text introduces therapists and speech pathologists to the principles of evidence-based practice and guides readers to the best available evidence regarding the management of a range of disorders within speech pathology. It should be applicable to speech pathologists at any stage of their clinical career, as well as being of use to speech pathology students and other health care professionals. The book is organized into three sections. In the first, the subject of evidence-based practice is introduced. Its application to the profession of speech pathology is addressed and types and levels of evidence are described. The second part focuses on a number of sub-specialist areas of speech pathology practice (dysphagia; paediatric motor speech disorders; aphasiology; voice; paediatric language and AAC). In the third section of the book the authors demonstrate how to apply the principles of evidence-based practice to clinical practice, to research and to education.
This book is written for an audience of clinical practitioners, at any stage of their career, and is additionally a valuable resource for SLT students and lecturers.

Like all health professionals, speech and language therapists (SLTs) need to keep themselves up-to-date with the research evidence base that is relevant to their field of practice and be able to show how this contributes to their clinical decision-making. However, it is not always clear to practitioners how evidence-based practice (EBP) can be properly embedded in their day-to-day activities. In this valuable book, Hazel Roddam and Jemma Skeat present a wealth of instructive examples by SLT contributors from around the world, showing how clinicians, educators, and researchers have risen to the EBP challenge. Embedding evidence-based practice in speech and language therapy showcases the creative ways that SLTs are developing knowledge and skills for EBP, creating contexts that support the use of evidence in practice, and working towards making evidence easily accessible and usable. It includes real-life examples of how SLTs have encountered a clinical problem or situation and have accessed and used the evidence within their day-to-day practice. The contributors come from a wide range of work settings, from services situated within large organizations to those in independent practice, and represent a range of clinical areas, from paediatric to adult and across speech, language, voice, fluency, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), and dysphagia. This book is written for an audience of clinical practitioners, at any stage of their career, and is additionally a valuable resource for SLT students and lecturers.

"Understanding Research and Evidence-Based Practice in Communication Disorders" is an engaging, student-friendly text that explores the connection between common communication science research methods and clinical practice. Covering both the conceptual and the quantitative aspects of research methods, evidence-based practice, experimental design, and statistics, this book both elucidates various models of research and practice and explains how these models are important to the greater field of communication science. While some students and practitioners find many books on research, evidence-based practice, and statistical concepts to be intimidating, abstract, and dry, this text strives to emphasize not only the ideas surrounding evidence-based practice but also how its principles can be applied in clinical practice. "Special Features Include: " - An exceptionally comprehensive structure and outline that covers experimental design, the nature of science, statistical methods, and evidence-based practice, taking students on an in-depth exploration of research models and practices.- A student-friendly style that approaches statistics using a conceptual point of view that emphasizes the proper selection of quantitative methods and their interpretation as opposed to how to compute them.- Learning objectives that outline the most important points of each chapter and serve to help students organize their thoughts before and after completing their reading assignments.- Learning activities, which appear in every chapter, allow students to apply what they have just learned and to think critically about the central concepts just covered.- A comprehensive glossary of research terms from all chapters appears at the back of the book so that students can quickly look up important concepts and definitions.- A chapter on how to seek grant support and how to design capstone projects emphasizes the practical applications of the book's concepts and lessons.

Evidence based practice (EBP) has proponents in all areas of healthcare and was endorsed in a technical report in 2004 and a position statement in 2005 by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Despite this, there is no text on EBP with specific application to audiology. It is particularly important in audiology, where there are various interventions to assist people with hearing impairment and a growing body of research evidence that needs to be appraised by clinicians and researchers. This comprehensive book describes the principles of EBP as they apply to the evaluation of audiologic interventions in children and adults. The reader will learn the process of EBP, as well as gain knowledge on the evidence relating to specific interventions. Evidence Based Practice in Audiology is divided into four sections. The first section describes principles of EBP, including how to evaluate evidence and how to facilitate evidence based decisions with clients. The remaining three sections provide a discussion of the best available evidence about hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other interventions. These three sections contain chapters written by leading international authors who summarize the best available evidence, highlight where further evidence is needed, and recommend how further evidence should be collected and applied in the clinic. The book ends with an appendix that contains recommended measures for the collection of evidence about different audiologic interventions. Evidence Based Practice in Audiology is a highly valued resource for students, researchers, clinical audiologists, other health professionals and policy makers. For students, the book can be used for learning about research methods and about outcomes of interventions for children and adults with hearing impairment. For researchers, the book provides a useful summary of available research on important topics in habilitation and rehabilitation and may assist them to design future research studies. For clinical audiologists, the book can help them understand what evidence is and how this can be applied in clinical practice. Other health professionals who can benefit from this book include ENTs, pediatricians, geriatricians, GPs, nurses, and aged care workers. The book can also guide policy makers and third-party payers in their decisions about allocation of resources. The text is written with sufficient information for readers with different backgrounds and experience and careful attention has been paid to presenting complex information in an easy to understand format. Evidence Based Practice in Audiology is edited by two leading academics in research in audiologic interventions. These editors have a rich clinical experience working with children and adults with hearing impairment and with other health professionals

This unprecedented book combines the best features of a textbook, resource manual, and guidebook, providing clinicians with evidence-based treatment protocols and detailed plans for teaching language skills and treating language disorders. The uniqueness of this collection lies in the author's approach, as each protocol gives the clinician a plan of action in the form of scripted scenarios. Unlike step-by-step directions, which can leave room for ambiguity, these scripts specify the anticipated verbal and nonverbal actions the clinician and child are expected to exhibit. Dr. Hegde, who has authored several well-received textbooks and practical clinical titles for speech-language pathologists, distills his unparalleled knowledge of clinical practice in this book, the first of Plural's Protocols. Dr. Hegde's careful review of treatment research evidence and his decision to offer only procedures that are evidence-based result in a collection of procedures that have been proven effective in clinical and experimental studies, eliminating the need for clinicians to research teaching exemplars. Designed for ease of use, Dr. Hegde's book facilitates treatment planning and implementation by greatly reducing preparation time. Protocols for all major functional language targets are included, each containing a specific plan of action with twenty examples of target behavior for each language skill. Each procedure is designed as a self-sufficient, separate entity, so that clinicians need not refer back and forth to teach a particular skill. The accompanying CD is an invaluable resource, containing printable forms that can be customized to assist clinicians in organizing clinical sessions, tracking client progress, and reporting results. The protocols are also ideal for student practicum sessions and courses in child language disorders.
