  • Evidence-Based Practice in Social Work: Looking Back and Moving Forward The evidence-based practice process was first introduced in social work in the early 2000s. Ove the last 19 years, several efforts to disseminate this model and improve the integration of research and practice have emerged. This panel will discuss the success of these efforts, ongoing challenges, and future recommendations. Panel, Presented, 10/25/2019.
  • Utility of Benchmarking to Evaluate the Implementation of Research Supported Interventions This roundtable session will begin with a description of the rationale and methodology of the benchmarking approach by one presenter, followed by a criticism of it by a second presenter, and then a reaction from a neutral third presenter who has done work with the Campbell and Cochrane Collaborations. Next, the first two presenters will respond to the third presentation. Audience participation in the discussion will then be encouraged and moderated by a fourth presenter. Our goal is to generate awareness of the benchmarking procedure, discuss its pros and cons, and stimulate its future use by social work researchers and practitioners who agree with its value and seek a way to strengthen implementation evaluations that they conduct in settings where control groups are not feasible. Panel, Presented, 01/18/2019.
