Currently, wider use of evidence-based practice in community agencies is challenged by a lack of resources and support to help staff understand the research implications and apply the findings to work with their specific population (s. e. bledsoe, personal communication, may 1, 2001).-apa groups formal and informal communication that is not published in the personal communication category, which includes interviews, letters, phone calls, and e-mail. cite personal communication in the text only. give the initials and the surname of the person, and provide as exact a date as possible. answer a is incorrect because your citation should document your source rather than your name as the interviewer. answer b is incorrect because the communicators initials and surname are listed before the type of communication and date. answer c uses the correct format and uses dr. bledsoe correct initials (i.e., sarah elizabeth bledsoe) answer d incorrectly uses interview instead of personal communication. answer e is incorrect because it not clear that the quote is from an interview.
