I initiated a conversation with the exercise physiologist about his belief system regarding evidence based practice (EBP) and how he integrates it into clinical practice. He said he uses evidence based practice to support his decisions about patient care and incorporates specific clinical expertise with the most appropriate clinical evidence. He believes that EBP is essential when selecting the right treatment for each patient and helps to anticipate health complications. He said EBP helps to understand patients’ values and patient care. He uses EBP to support the process of patient care and performance. However, he stated that EBP does not apply to all patients, and health care professionals should apply their clinical experience and self-judge.
