Evidence-Based Practice for Occupational Therapy: Cult, Fad or Relevant.

Most occupational therapists accept evidence-based practice (EBP) as the ideal for guiding practice and research. This presentation raises the following questions: What are the implications of EBP to the profession? Is it appropriate for the profession to embrace EBP uncritically? Is EBP the correct paradigm for occupational therapy? Most importantly, is the adoption of EBP by occupational therapists benefiting the profession and its consumers?
