Evidence-based health

Focus: Physiotherapy


Why is health information so conflicting? Is there a place where health information is reliable? What should I consider when encountering something that seems magical? How is the health system affected by these issues?

These questions guide this Evidence-Based Health course.
The use of EBH ensures that clinical practice is based in the light of the best scientific evidence and patient benefits as a result. The use of EBH also results in more consistent clinical recommendations and practices across the health service.

The definition of EBH evolve the integration of 3 components for best decision making:
1) the best evidence,
2) individual practitioner’s clinical expertise, and
3) patients’ preference.
