“This book then is an essential bridge to assist the application of EBP to physiotherapy. Dr. Fetters and Dr. Tilson have done an excellent job in describing the fundamentals of EBP, and expertly adapting them to the needs of physiotherapists using everyday clinical examples to illustrate the processes. Using this book will help in learning these vital skills for 21st century practice.” — Paul Glasziou, Professor, Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice, Bond University, Australia
Improve outcomes through evidence-based therapy. This practical, easy-to-use guide uses a five-step process to show you how to find, appraise, and apply the research in the literature to meet your patient’s goals.
You'll learn how to develop evidence-based questions specific to your clinical decisions and conduct efficient and effective searches of print and online sources to identify the most relevant and highest quality evidence. Then, you'll undertake a careful appraisal of the information; interpret the research; and synthesize the results to generate valid answers to your questions. And, finally, you'll use the Critically Appraised Topic (CAT) tool to communicate your findings.

Great resource for applying evidence to practice.“The book is very clearly written with clinical examples, and in-depth questions. If you want a comprehensive book on statistics this is not the book for you, but it is an easily understandable introduction to physical therapy research which will help you to interpret the literature and apply it to your patients.”
Five Stars.“This book is a must have for those just being introduced to EBP and research in physical therapy.”
