Show your students how to use evidence to improve their practice! Thoroughly covering the full range of rehabilitation research with a clear, easy-to-understand approach, Rehabilitation Research: Principles and Applications, 5th Edition will help your students analyze and apply research to practice. It examines traditional experimental designs as well as nonexperimental and emerging approaches, including qualitative research, single-subject designs, outcomes research, and survey research. Ideal for students and practitioners in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and communication sciences and disorders, this user-friendly resource emphasizes evidence-based practice and the development of true scientist-practitioners.

    • Evidence-Based Practice chapter provides an overview of the important concepts of EBP and the WHO model of health and disease.
    • Interdisciplinary author team consisting of a PT and an ASHA dually-certified SLP/AUD brings an interdisciplinary focus and a stronger emphasis on evidence-based practice.
    • Discipline-specific examples are drawn from three major fields: physical therapy, occupational therapy, and communication sciences and disorders.
    • Coverage of nonexperimental research includes chapters on clinical case studies and qualitative research, so you understand a wide range of research methods and when it is most appropriate to use each type.
    • Finding Research Literature chapter includes step-by-step descriptions of literature searches within different rehabilitation professions.
    • NEW! Completely updated evidence-based content and references makes the information useful for both students and rehab practitioners.
    • UPDATED! Expanded Single-Subject Designs chapter provides a more thorough explanation and examples of withdrawal, multiple baselines, alternating treatments, and interactions - designs that you can use in everyday clinical practice.
