Evidence-based
practice. ESN working group

ESN’s working group on 'Leadership, performance and innovation' has recently
held a special meeting on evidence-based practice. Participants
looked at different types of data needed to build evidence-based
strategies, how new practices can become evidence of what works
and what are the barriers in applying evidence, among others.



Besides testing existing practices, social services need to create
innovative new models to meet new social needs or current needs
in better ways. Research and evidence may become a new driver of
policy development and service design, alongside social values,
professional ethics, human rights, political priorities and economic
realities.
