Written to help rehabilitation students and professionals change and improve their practices on the basis of the evidence, this new edition provides a practical framework for understanding and applying the systematic process of research. Highlighting both traditional research methods and emerging approaches, this book keeps the reader apprised of the current and future focus of rehabilitation research and emphasizes the importance of the joint effort of the producers and consumers of research. It uses straightforward language and relevant examples to capture the diversity and complexity of research that is of interest to rehabilitation professionals. Provides a solid grounding in traditional research design and analysis and an introduction to emerging research topics, all in the context of physical therapy research Covers outcomes research, epidemiology, qualitative design, single-system design, case reports, survey research, and the data analysis techniques used with these research approaches Each chapter is supported with a wide variety of contemporary and classic references, for those readers who require more details on a particular topic Unique contributions from an interdisciplinary team representing physical therapy and athletic training, speech language pathology, and occupational therapy A new chapter on Synthesizing Bodies of Evidence provides ways and reasons to synthesize the literature More social science and educational research techniques and tools to reflect the variety of ways that different authors conceptualize function across the studies cited in this edition Increased emphasis on randomized controlled trials and evidence-based practice Expanded glossary with more than 150 new words Valuable additions added to the chapter on locating the literature
