Evidence-based practice and deep experiential knowledge

Research Briefing

Keywords: evidence-based practice, mutual aid groups, experiential knowledge, experience, deep experiential knowledge, knowledge management

Many industries and sectors have been undergoing a series of reforms over the past 5 to 10 years based around the idea of evidence-based practice. The idea behind evidence-based practice is that organisations and their people can learn to make better decisions by drawing data, ideas and indications from a series of sources including:

  • Research studies
  • Practitioner experience
  • Client or customer needs and wishes
  • Feedback

However, a number of studies over the years have shown that organisations engaging with evidence-based practices tend to focus primarily on peer-reviewed research studies and less on integrating practitioner experience.
