By Mark DeRuiter, Sarah Ginsberg Copyright 2023

    Clinician's Guide to Applying, Conducting, and Disseminating Clinical Education Research provides clinical educators with the fundamental knowledge to be e­ffective consumers of research and integrate it into their clinical education practice.

    Clinical educators are routinely called upon to provide early-career clinicians with clinical education and supervision within their practice. Clinician’s Guide to Applying, Conducting, and Disseminating Clinical Education Research fits at the intersection of clinical education and research for the supervising clinician—helping clinicians consider how they might contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning related to clinical education.

    This one-of-a-kind text features a multidisciplinary perspective with contributors from various fields in allied health, such as speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, audiology, physical therapy, and more.

    What’s included in Clinician’s Guide to Applying, Conducting, and Disseminating Clinical Education Research:

    • A hands-on workbook section for clinical educators to apply the content to education and clinical supervision research
    • Chapters on seeking research mentorship, qualitative and quantitative research foundational concepts, and publishing and presenting research
    • Parallels between evidence-based practice and evidence-based education
    Clinician’s Guide to Applying, Conducting, and Disseminating Clinical Education Research walks the reader through generating research all the way to implementation and dissemination while linking communities of working professionals to their students and research institutions.
