Session overview

Many of the theories, concepts and principles which guide manual and physical therapy practice have developed from the interpretations, experiences and personal observations of prominent individuals from the professions’ beginnings. However, there is now broad agreement that health professionals should incorporate research evidence into their clinical decision-making with patients, to provide optimal and safe care. However, it can be a real challenge to adopt evidence based practice (EBP) of time, skills and knowledge to implement EBP are often barriers to therapists incorporating research into their practice. Recognising where research evidence fits alongside practitioners’ own judgement, experience combined the patients’ preferences and values can be a problem.

At the end of the workshop you will:

  • Appreciate traditional and contemporary models of EBP.
  • Be able to draw upon the varied range of methodologies and evidence which address the varied questions and situations encountered in clinical practice.
  • Recognise the limitations, reach and contribution of EBP to contemporary biopsychosocial musculoskeletal practice.
  • Introduction to strategies to adopt EBP into your own clinical practice model.
