Occupational therapy is required to deliver and generate evidence-based practice. As currently articulated, evidence-based practice requires particular skills and takes time and is rarely realized. This paper illustrates a collaborative approach to building an evidence based training program within a practice context. The aim of the training program was to enable therapists in a large mental health setting to engage in evidence-based practice. Specifically, the partnership between the United Kingdom Centre for Outcomes Research and Education (UK CORE) and Gloucestershire Partnership NHS Trust (GPT) will be described. This article describes the GPT/UKCORE partnership, the process of building an evidence-based practice training program, the final structure of the evidence-based practice training program, and the evaluation of the evidence-based practice training program.
