Application of a Logic Model to an Evidence-based Practice Training Program for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists
Abstract:The purpose of this study was to present the application of a logic model in planning, implementing, and evaluating an evidence-based practice (EBP) training program for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and audiologists. A logic model was used as a guide in developing the EBP training program. The program investigators delineated the core components of the logic model based on the results of a needs assessment survey of SLPs and audiologists as well as literature reviews. The major components of the logic model were constructed as inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes/impacts. Statistical analysis using repeated measures ANOVA for the pre-test and post-test indicated that the participants increased their EBP knowledge, information searching skills, and confidence in using EBP in their clinical practice (p<0.001). Five of the eight program objectives were met by having at least 75% of the participants achieve the objectives. The logic model is a useful tool for grant application and program planning, implementation, and evaluation.
