Oxford University Press

This chapter situates clinical data-mining (CDM) specifically as a “practice-based research” strategy rather than as an example of “research-based practice.” The latter more closely approximates evidence-based practice (EBP). In making this distinction, the chapter describes the underlying epistemological assumptions of each. It briefly reviews some less successful prior practice-research integration efforts and how they prepared the ground for CDM. It locates CDM in the context of the current EBP movement and introduces the idea of a less hierarchical “evidence-informed” model of practice-research integration. This more inclusive practice-research integration paradigm is dubbed as “Evidence-Informed Practice” (EIP).
