Topic Treatment For OCD - How to Treat Your OCD
AF: Based on those experiences, Brain Stimulator Method and also the companies you have been involved with, what are your reflections on how to put knowledge to good use?
JD: I may suggest the following. One, that putting good evidence to work in practice requires more than publishing good research. I'd say that scientific evidence is directly relevant to perhaps 15% of clinical decisions,. The remaining 85%, demands some degree of inference where we need other translational tools such as well-done quantitative studies of expert opinion.
Second, we require technologies that translate emergent knowledge into practice. Continuously updated Expert Decision Support systems embedded in EHR's are absolutely necessary to close the gap between the development of new knowledge and its effective use.
