EVIDENCE-BASED CHANGE 2
Evidence-Based Change
The Change
Traditional prediction strategies such as quantitative models, theoretical approaches, and
trend extrapolation could not be used in areas where precise scientific laws had not yet being
established prompting researchers to find other techniques. Research showed it was vital to use
critically analyzed expert opinion before decisions making (Bowles, 1999). Therefore, they
developed a simple technique that bases decision making on group judgments rather than relying
on an individual’s assumption. The technique focuses on a series of rounds where information is
repeatedly passed through a panel using questionnaires; that helps coming up with the best final
solution to be applied. The improved decision making that is later applied to the various practices
serves as evidence to best indicate how research in decision making has helped. Currently, nurse
researchers have been using this technique when conducting their research work having
borrowed this from social science researchers (Bowles, 1999). The new method is increasingly
being employed to help enhance decision making in both health and social care. The panel of
experts gives opinions on; frequency, likelihoods and the magnitude of potential problems that
may arise in the medical practice while another panel gives feedbacks.
Strengths
The method focuses on the maximization of the participants’ judgments in decision
making (Keeney, Hasson, & McKenna, 2001). Problems are solved accurately through the
combined efforts of geographically dispersed experts. Experts’ responses are anonymous until
the solution is obtained reducing peer pressures when making judgments. Time is saved by
bringing them together rather than seeking opinions from their different areas. Communication is
