The role of individual characteristics, knowledge, and attitudes toward the use of Evidence-Based Practices among mental health providers in Puerto Rico

Nayra C. Rodríguez-Soto, Guillermo Bernal, Eduardo Cumba Avilés

Resumen


This study evaluated how Evidence Based-Practice (EBP) knowledge, attitudes, and individual differences could predict EBP behaviors in a sample of health providers. A cross-sectional design was used to collect data using a sample of convenience of 132 Puerto Rican mental health providers between 24-80 years of age. An evidence-based professional practice scale (EBPP-S) and a socio-demographic form were utilized. Knowledge of EBP, provider’s age, and holding a doctoral degree were the strongest predictors of EBP behaviors. The educational and health ramifications of the findings are discussed.
