PT 583 Introduction to Evidence-based Practice

3 Credits

Foundational knowledge related to evidence-based practice and evaluation of evidence is introduced in this course. Students learn the basis and purpose of reflective practice, research and theory development in physical therapy, and a method for keeping current with the ever-expanding information base of physical therapy. Different types of research are also introduced. Students are taught to critique physical therapy literature relative to research design, reliability, and validity. They are also required to rate the literature by using a standardized scale. This course provides foundational knowledge for future courses in the Physical Therapy Program curriculum.
