After selection and appraisal, rigorous research evidence will be integrated with current clinical knowledge/expertise and contextual factors. You will then develop, articulate and justify, through written and verbal presentations, evidence- based occupational therapy practice recommendations that identify where changes in practice have or must occur in response to new knowledge.
