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.


'For clinicians who are currently swamped in the looming tide of research and evidence, it offers a life raft of clarity', Donovan K, Physical Therapy Reviews 10, 192.

“This book offers more than most standard texts…I highly recommend this book.”

Gillian Robb. EBM February 2008 Vol 12 No 1
