Abstract:   (791 Views)
Background and Objectives: Evidence-based Practice has been shown to improve patient care and outcomes, and studies emphasize that one of the barriers to the non-use of evidence-based practice (EBP) is the lack of proper education in this area. This study aims to develop educational factors in evidence-based rehabilitation.
Methods: The study was conducted using the content analysis method. The study population was the rehabilitation educators in rehabilitation schools in Iran. Purposive sampling and semi structured interviews were applied to gather the data. A total of 16 rehabilitation educators were interviewed. Data analysis was conducted using Graneheim and Lundman methods. 
Results: The findings of this study showed that evidence-based practice (EBP) is an educational (practical) process. Effective educational factors in evidence-based performance begin with the consideration of the needs of the patients and then look for the best methods to find the best evidence. Four themes, 10 categories, and 37 subcategories have been extracted from the study. From the analysis of the data obtained from the interviews, four main themes of “learning to find scientific evidence”, “interaction in the field of education,” “restrictive factors,” and “facilitating factors” emerged.
Conclusion: Finally, they considered the triple principles of the best evidence medical education, which include the use of available scientific evidence, clinical experiences, and the client’s needs. For treatment, it integrates these parameters, and proper and timely education plays a fundamental role in this process.
