Evidence Based Practice II
SAR HP 662
This course is the second in a series of two courses on Evidence Based Practice for physical therapy students. It is designed to develop essential skills for conducting evidence-based practice. There are about three forms of evidence supporting clinical practice, that is, 1) experience from clinical practice, 2) patient values and goals, and 3) the evidence that comes from the research literature. It takes skill combining these sources of evidence into effective and efficient physical therapy and athletic training practice. This course enhances the student's ability to formulate answerable clinical questions, search relevant research literature, analyze the validity of the outcomes reported in these studies, and combine the outcomes of different research studies in the form of a research synthesis (i.e., critical review and meta-analysis). Literature addressing clinical issues of intervention, diagnosis, and prognosis will be used throughout to illustrate the arguments.
