Abstract [en]

The purpose with this review is to investigate evidence-based practice (EBP), and which arguments are used to justify EBP. The year of 2006 Bergmark and Lundström published an article regarding the problems concerning EBP. They are discussing that several different definitions of EBP are existing, which they mean can lead to difficulties using the EBP-methods in real life. In this study six articles, from the years 2007-2011, have been analyzed using Mertons structure-functional theory and Lipskys theory of street-level bureaucracy. Different definitions of EBP are discussed in the articles and there seem to be a need to clarify the concept. EBP also seems to lead to deprofessionalization and it could be difficult adapting the EBP-methods in the social work because it is perceived as a very complex practice. Overall, the articles mostly inhents a positive attitude towards EBP, where some articles mentions a potential with EBP. Regarding Bergmark and Lundströms article you can see some development regarding EBPs different definitions where it seems to be leading towards a more coherent definition.
