EBP in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
Use the readings assigned this week to identify and discuss evidence-based practices (EBP) and strategies to guide health promotion and disease prevention with the use of CAM. In your discussion, consider the following:
Identify three examples from the professional literature or the Internet that illustrate how EBP is used in health promotion and disease prevention using CAM therapies.
Do you think there is adequate evidence to support CAM therapies in health promotion or disease prevention?
Do you think the evidence is reliable? Why or why not?
Why is it important to have evidence for CAM therapies?
Your initial posting should be at least 150 words, and you must reference the work of another writer (either as a quotation, paraphrase, or summary) to provide support for your ideas. The source can be the course text, another relevant book, any assigned reading, or an article you find on your own through the Capella University Library. When you incorporate the other writer’s ideas in your work, use APA citation style to give credit to that writer. Remember that an APA citation includes both the in-text citation (the author’s last name and the year of publication) and the full reference for the source.
