This course builds on learning from PT 610 and integrates learning from PT 632. Students determine and write clinically-applicable and answerable questions that relate to diagnosis, prognosis, and interventions for patients with musculoskeletal problems. Using questions as a base, students implement literature searches and critically appraise the articles found based on the search. Students discuss the credibility of the research, including issues of bias, confounding, statistical significance and clinical importance. Emphasis is on discussion of the strength of the evidence and its relevance to the management of their patient. Students build a library of CATs related to management of patients with musculoskeletal conditions.
