Abstract


Through this academic-service collaboration, undergraduate students engaged with a service partner to complete evidence-based practice projects. This case report describes the process and the outcomes of the three year experience. Project outcomes were evaluated through student and staff surveys. Students completed pre- and post-project surveys that revealed increased knowledge of evidence-based practice (EBP) and increased confidence in finding evidence for practice.  Student responses also indicated high satisfaction with the process. The service partner staff post-project surveys indicated a high level of satisfaction with the process, increased learning and that targeted agency outcomes had been achieved.
