Whether you’re first exploring evidence-based care issues, looking for information on how to create clinical practice guidelines, or trying to learn about ways to conduct guideline appraisals, a new APTA webpage can make the work a little less daunting.
The association's new Resources for the Development of Evidence-Based Documents webpage brings together offerings that not only help physical therapists (PTs) access current guidelines and research, but provide PTs with materials that will help them learn how to contribute to the growing pool of evidence-based physical therapy research. The page includes links to APTA's PTNow research resource, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Systematic Review Data Repository, and the PEDro Physiotherapy Evidence Database, as well as information on how to conduct critical appraisals and develop recommendations.
The new page is part of APTA's strategic objective to better enable physical therapists to consistently use best practice to improve the quality of life of their patients and clients.
