Practitioner Training: Developing and Implementing a Methodology for Clinical Practice: Improving Patient and Practitioner Outcomes

I finished my qualifications, in preparation to practice, not knowing where to start. I thought I knew how to generate information, conduct a consultation, meet best practice expectations, I was wrong. Over several years I have developed a clinical methodology, based on a model of Clinical Practice Improvement with the intention to maximise patient outcomes and minimise job-related stressors. I would like to share this with you.

The era of evidence based practice (EBP) has encouraged clinicians to introduce strategies that will:

  • Support Patient Outcomes
  • Minimise Practitioner Consultation
  • Reduce Ongoing Out-of-pocket expense for the consumer

Practice-Based Methodology

My model of practice is based on a prospective approach. A prospective approach relies on observation to generate knowledge and develop strategies for improved patient outcome. At first, this approach may sound simplified. However, the approach itself requires a complex framework that ensures:

  • Accurate Descriptors of Individual Characteristics of the Patient
  • Detailed Methods for Measuring the Interventions you use
  • Clear Explanations on Intervention for your Patient

The purpose of this approach is to consider how you naturally undertake care, in real-time,  in your clinic.


Session 1: Introduction to EBP and Practice Based Methodology

The first session will provide education and training on what is evidence-based practice (EBP), and how EBP it can be applied in your clinic. Practitioners will receive a comprehesive report on how this approach to practice will serve your individual specialisation.

Session 2: Applying EBP in Clinical Practice

During session 2, we will develop specific clinical guidelines for your individual specialisation. These guidelines will form the foundation of the interventions you use in your practice.

Session 3: Practice-Based Methodology  (Digital Recording)

Session 3 consists of clinical observation (Digital Recording). Observation, monitoring and evaluation of how you apply evidence in your consultation will be discussed. Assessment will focus on implementation of EBP principles.

Session 4: Practice-Based Methodology (Real-Time)

Session 4 consists of clinical observation. During this session we look to address considerations which presented during session 3 and aim to refine the process of using a practice-based methodology with patients.

Session 5: Clinical Assessment and Review 

Session 5 represents the final session. This session consists of clinical assessment and review. The practitioner undertakes clinical assessment and review of another practitioner implementing a practice-based methodology in real-time. The benefit in undertaking this session is to appreciate your own clinical experience, and develop a critique for actioning a review during your own consultations.
