Evidenced-based practice in social work

3 days ago
ESSS has been looking into the research around evidence-based practice (EBP) in social work. In this post, we'll be sharing some of the key issues highlighted in the literature. Generally, there is a lot of discussion around the barriers to EBP. These tend to be focused around the evidence itself, practitioners and organisations, and we've summarised some of these issues here.

Open access social services research

1 month 1 week ago
We're in the process of building an online learning resource to help people working in the area of social services to learn more about finding, accessing and using research and evidence to support their practice. In the meantime, we thought we'd share some of the free tools we use when we're working on our Outlines to support social services practitioners.

Social services evidence

2 months 1 week ago
When we're asked to produce an evidence summary or review, we use a wide range of evidence sources to make sure we're finding research, reports of activities, evaluations and discussions around the topic from a variety of voices and perspectives. We thought it would be useful to share these resources. We want to know what you think about them.
