Evaluation of social work practice is a fundamental aspect of providing social care and delivering services to society members. As standards of social work practice and the increased recognition of the field of social work in the mental health profession continue to gain prominence, social work professionals are becoming more in touch with evidence-based practice. This online survey of 265 social work professionals are evaluating their practice in many ways. The survey found that participants used more direct interactions, i.e., client feedback tools, client practitioner feedback rather than more analytic methods. Most participants also found workload as a factor that hinders their ability to evaluate their practice. Implications and limitations are also articulated.
