Friday, January 31, 2014 New PTNow Blog Starts the Conversation About Evidence in Practice There's a lot of talk out there about bringing evidence into practice. So how about a conversation? APTA has launched a new blog on its PTNow.org website aimed at energizing thought and sparking dialogue about the role of evidence-informed practice in physical therapy. The blog will provide physical therapists (PTs) with a place to have ongoing discussions about how to move information synthesis into practice reality—from implementing changes in a patient-centered environment, to keeping up with the latest practice strategies, to finding out how other specialties are approaching the challenge. The blog is intended to be provocative and dynamic: Readers are encouraged to react, engage, and share their own experiences and ideas. The blog is part of an expanded, interactive PTNow website intended to serve as the best single place for PTs to find the evidence they need to enhance practice, and to engage peers and experts in relevant discussions. The PTNow blog joins a suite of PTNow resources including clinical summaries, tests and measures, case examples, clinical practice guidelines and Cochrane Reviews, and PTNow ArticleSearch, a revamped version of the search resource formerly known as Open Door.
