Abstract

Implementation of evidence-based practices requires models and faciltiators that allow clinicians to efficiently select from the most appropriate evidence-supported treatments for their patients.  This paper presents a preliminary clinical-decision making model for selecting aphasia treatments, based on the scientific evidence.  The four steps of the model include considerations for cognitive profile, functional contexts, impairments and/or strategies, and a menu of evidence-supported treatments.  Each of these four steps are founded on a rigorous literature review. Two illustrative cases are presented and future requirements for further testing of the model are discussed
