(p.185) 7 The Possible Futures of CDM and Evidence-Based Practice
Clinical Data-Mining

Irwin Epstein

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents some personal thoughts about future possibilities for CDM based upon current involvement as a research consultant and as a social work doctoral faculty member. It briefly describes some practitioner-initiated, multidisciplinary CDM studies, and some CDM doctoral dissertations that are currently in the works. It then discusses prior efforts to create experimental analogs with available data that most closely approximate the RCT research ideal. It introduces a promising new data-analytic tool (Propensity Score Matching) that carries with it exciting data-mining possibilities. Finally, the chapter stakes a final claim for a model of social work research that includes CDM in particular and practitioner-research more generally.

Keywords:   clinical data-mining, data collection, CDM studies, Propensity Score Matching, social work research
