“THIS was THE BEST 4-hour course I’ve ever had.So well presented, so usable 

Joseph Giacino, PhD

Director of Rehabilitation Neuropsychology, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital


This course, co-sponsored by the Guideline Development, Dissemination, and Implementation Committee and the ACRM Evidence and Practice Committee, presents “how to” information that will help clinicians and researchers evaluate evidence from rehabilitation studies and translate evidence into everyday clinical practice. A primary aim is to de-mystify evidence-based practice concepts and equip participants with the knowledge and tools needed to translate evidence (e.g., a published article or clinical trial data) into action (e.g., choosing and implementing a specific intervention). This course will use brief didactic presentations and emphasize applying new knowledge in small work groups.


  • Understand the principles of EBP, systematic review of evidence, and how these apply to the everyday practice of rehabilitation
  • Analyze published articles that address therapeutic questions, assessing their accuracy and scientific rigor
  • Synthesize the evidence from available studies with a focus on low-bias properly statistically analyzed research
  • Make appropriate evidence-based clinical decisions on the selection of treatments based on evaluated research
  • Reduce making clinical decisions based on studies with very high bias and/or misuse of statistical procedures
