Standard

The physiotherapist incorporates evidence-informed practice in all aspects of physiotherapy service delivery.

Expected outcome

Clients can expect that the physiotherapy services they receive are informed by consideration of the best available evidence, client needs, and the personal knowledge and experience of the physiotherapist.

Performance expectations

The physiotherapist:

  • Incorporates current physiotherapy-related evidence into client-centered care by reviewing relevant research/information and integrating findings into assessment and intervention plans.
  • Integrates critical thinking and professional judgment into client-centered care, evaluates her/his practice in terms of client outcomes, and modifies approaches based on this self-reflective process.
  • Participates in sharing information related to evidence and best practices to support improvement of client outcomes and the delivery of quality services within the health-care system at large.
