Contact the Researcher

You are here

Have you contacted the researcher to discuss potential adaptations?

Scientists and research staff have insight that may not be in their publications or the materials developed to teach the practice.

Contrary to popular belief, they are frequently willing to discuss your desired adaptation and to talk about their research with practitioners. They are generally pretty easy to find because their publications list their institutions and often their contact information and most universities have publicly available, searchable databases of staff contacts when you don’t find the contact information in a publication.

Either call the trainer who taught your staff the EBP or use google scholar to find the original research.

If the contact author’s email address is listed, just send them an email question or a request for a phone call. If their contact information is not in the publication, go to the website of their institution and search.
