Title: Is There a Contradiction Between the Bio-psycho-social Model and Evidence-based Practice?
Author: Fleisher, David R.
Date: 200-
Abstract: Evidence-based knowledge is essential to good practice. However, there are fundamentally different ways of developing evidence. Data gathering by epidemiologic surveys is most likely to get at the “truth” when the diseases in question are caused by contingencies over which people have no control.. In such cases, the personalities of the individuals within the studied population are relatively unimportant. Looking at the incidence of Influenza in Missouri doesn't require knowledge beyond whether or not the individuals surveyed caught the flu and lived in Missouri.
