What is Evidence-based physical therapist Practice

  • Evidence-based physical therapist practice is “open and thoughtful clinical decision making” about physical therapist management of a patient or client that integrates the “best available evidence with clinical judgment” and the patient or client’s preferences and values, and that further considers the larger social context in which physical therapy services are provided, to optimize patient or client outcomes and quality of life.
  • The Centre for Evidence-based Medicine was established in Oxford as the first of several UK centres with the aim of promoting evidence-based health care. The CEBM provides free support and resources to doctors, clinicians, teachers and others interested in learning more about EBM.
  • Tutorial from Duke: describes evidence-based practice
  • A helpful guide on Resources for Evidence-Based Practice: the 6S Pyramid with PICO was developed by the Health Sciences Library at McMaster University. Keep in mind that they may have links that do not open for WU students.
