The evidence-based practice (EBP) movement has gained ground steadily in physiotherapy over the past decade. Influential researchers and clinicians have argued that physiotherapists have a moral and professional obligation to move away from assessment and treatment methods based on anecdotal testimonies or opinion (Grimmer-Somers 2007). However, the growing volume of high-quality clinical research makes it difficult for clinicians to keep pace with the latest evidence. Simultaneously, the practice of physiotherapy has become increasingly complex due to changes in health care systems that entail higher demands on physiotherapists to provide effective and efficient management of patients amidst high patient turnover.
