Evidence-based practice has become a central part of physiotherapy today, but it is still an area which is constantly expanding and being updated. Written by an international team of experts, this second edition continues to outline the basic definitions of evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning, while detailing how to find and critically appraise evidence and clinical practice guidelines and the steps to follow in the implementation and evaluation of evidence.

For those struggling to understand both the concepts and how to implement them, this book will prove to be an invaluable and practical guide.


"This textbook offers a succinct and well organised  introduction to what ia evidence-based practice, how to recognise it in the research cohort, how to search for it in the many research databases available and how to use evidence to guide clinical practice. The book is specifically aimed towards musculo-skeletal practice. This should not put off others with an interest in evidence-based practice and research as, at its core, the information can be applied across the field of all clinical practice."
