The term Evidenced-based practice (EBP) is one of the most talked about concepts in healthcare. Nursing scholars, worldwide, have sought to provide healthcare workers with the evidence from research to be transform this into clinical care. To ease this transference of data into practice, scholars have developed EBP models. These models direct the researcher with the process from hypothesis to implementation of the data. The perplexity of EBP is that the data can come from research, clinical experience, patients, or local context and environment (Rycroft-Malone, et al., 2012). Because of the complexities of driving research in the healthcare field, different models were developed with different healthcare agendas in mind.
_A box of crayons, pots of finger paints, or tubs of playdough can take us right back to childhood. Pottering with art supplies is super fun, but are these simple tools capable of doing much more for children, especially those with behavioral and psychological disorders? Art therapy stimulates children's natural imagination that is found to be beneficial in treating learning and behavioral disorders, healing traumatic memories, and coping with grief._
The scientist-practitioner model of practice and applied behavior analysis share some of the same commonalities. The scientist-practitioner model and ABA both have foundations that psychologists engage in psychological theory, field work, and research mythology (LeJeune & Luoma, 2015). The scientist-practitioner model urges therapist to use empirical research that influences their ABA. Therefore, this will allow therapist to continue advancing and improving the ABA field (Furthermore, they both share commonalities when it comes to identifying behaviors (dependent variables), experimental manipulation (independent variables), and evaluating treatment effectiveness. They also share commonalities in having the best research and clinical skills using scientific-based research to convey assessments and interventions. In order for clients to receive the best treatment we must use empirical science and evaluate treatment data to evaluate and make sure clients are receiving the best treatment possible for their individual needs. Furthermore, scientific approaches can ensure us that the interventions utilize should be the most effective. It is important that scientific practice provides us with the ability to acquire skills to evaluate and formulate hypothesis. The scientific-practitioner model ties into the BCBA guidelines as well.
Research studies show that evidence-based practice (EBP) leads to higher quality care, improved patient outcomes, reduced costs, and greater nurse satisfaction than traditional approaches to care.1-5 Despite these favorable findings, many nurses remain inconsistent in their implementation of evidence-based care.
Phenomenological art therapy as explicated by Betensky (1995) is a clearly formulated art therapy approach that attempts to understand the phenomena of the artwork and the creative process from within itself through "intentional observation" and reflection.
From the beginning, the therapist had to deal with own doubts and anxiety. The therapist had heard a lot about the psychodynamic psychotherapy but this was the first time he conduct the sessions by himself. Unlike pharmacotherapy, there is no standard clinical practice guideline or recommendation for the therapist to refer to or follow. The therapist was worried that he was unable to conduct the therapy effectively and his patient would not benefit from the therapy. Fortunately, the therapist received a lot of encouragement and support from his supervisor, which enabled him to complete the therapy sessions with his patient.
The purpose of this essay is to conduct a comprehensive critical appraisal of a research paper titled ‘Chloramphenicol treatment for acute infective conjunctivitis in children in primary care’ that was carried out by Rose et al. (2005) in the United Kingdom (UK). The aim of evaluation is to critically concentrate on the strength and limitation of the study. Firstly, a clear definition of critical appraisal and its importance will be highlighted, going on further will be the critical, analysis, discussion and evaluation of the peer reviewed paper contents so as to ascertain the validity and reliability of the study. Therefore, a conclusion will be drawn to learning its significance in public health.

This begins with gaining the finance needed to adopt and implement the programs. The need for professionals with the proper training and credentials is required when pursuing and evidence-base program. At time one the organization us the program they find out that the program is not suitable for them. For example, they program might not met the community they are serving. This is notice in programs who are seeking to obtain positive outcomes in various communities. Another issue with the evidence-base program is with the randomized control trial (RCT). The used of the randomized control trial is usefulness but not value. According to Tanenbaum (2005), the effectiveness is due to the methods used can be difficult to understand and can have biases associated with the program (p. 165).

What are the major findings and do they support the hypothesis/hypotheses or address the research question(s)?
What was the issue brought in by the client? What other issues came up as the therapist and client talked?
The speech “Art can heal PTSD’s invisible Wounds” spoke by Melissa Walker, she spoke about how art can heal unspoken wounds. Melissa’s grandfather was a war veteran, which inspired her to search for a cure. She persuaded people to speak about their problems through art. The many patients she had dug up their old pains and put it on a mask. She helped thousands come out about their experience in the war in a sculpture. She then had them explain and talk about why they created it how they did. She helped the veterans with their PTSD, and she could help you with the art therapy too.
The purpose of this evaluation of the Ohel-Bais Ezra Outpatient Substance Abuse Program is to provide information to the agency Executive Director, David Mandel, the six current program directors and Chief Financial Officer, Howard Lorch. Mr. Mandel requested this evaluation, and he has specifically requested it to focus most specifically on the number of patients/clients served and determining if the program goals and objectives have been met. Another area of concern Mr. Mandel voiced to the evaluation team leader, Marcia Kesner was concern of the likely relatively high cost per patient/client served and determining if the program might provide similar services more cost effectively.
Overshadowed by the emphasis on scientific models and the development of medicine, the use of creative activities – the traditional core element of occupational therapy profession – has declined in recent decades (Müllersdorf, p. 369). Yet, 80% of the occupational therapists in the United Kingdom still employ creative activities in their practices at least once a week (Müllersdorf, p. 370). Although creative activities were extensively mentioned in the occupational therapy literature, its principal definition has not been identified (Müllersdorf, p. 370). In “What, Why, How – Creative Activities in Occupational Therapy Practice in Sweden” research article, Müllersdorf and Ivarsson aimed to "increase the knowledge of occupational therapy today
