The Editor of the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, Richard Peach, wrote two editorials in 2002 (Peach, 2002a, 2002b) and one in 2004 (Peach, 2004) about evidence-based procedures in clinical practice. He reminded us about the critical importance of using a breadth of empirical data in making informed clinical decisions, particularly in light of the mounting pressures for accountabilities in our professions and the emerging trend of specialized certification. I am writing to support Peach's comments and to provide a brief commentary on the role of the Canadian Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (CASLPA) in advancing the knowledge and use of evidence-based clinical decision making among our colleagues. I also want to point out the efforts made by a Canadian university program in audiology and speech-language pathology to develop and to establish in its curriculum two required graduate-level courses in evidence-based clinical practice.
