How do you stay up to date with the latest research in your field? Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn? Or has that slipped away since you graduated, and no longer had to reference assignments. The good news is there’s more research being published around animal behavior than ever before. The bad news is you might not know it exists or how to access it. Evidence-based practice is a relatively new buzzword for the animal behavior and training world, but it’s been around a long time in human health care and research. When we’re trying to decide what strategy to take for a specific client, or justify a decision to the animal shelter, wouldn’t it be great to have some solid scientific backup? Even if it turns out that there’s not much evidence, that can help inform our decisions too. Learning Objectives: • Learn how to frame clinical questions – the starting point for all evidence-based practice. • Discover the best places to search for reader-friendly summaries of research. • Seek out and retrieve relevant research papers.
