Calling Evidence-Based Practice into Question: Acknowledging phronetic knowledge in social work

The article argues that evidence-based practice suffers from a dilemma whereby a narrow view of evidence is prioritized at the cost of relevance to social work and suggests that praxis-based knowledge informed by different forms of knowledge is a better option with a greater potential to enhance the use of knowledge in social work practice. The article highights that phronesis is important for making social science matter in practice, and that this holds true in particular for social work.
