Abstract

Evidence-based practice involves physiotherapists incorporating high-quality clinical research on treatment efficacy into their clinical decision-making. However, if clinical interventions are not adequately reported in the literature, physiotherapists face an important barrier to using effective interventions for their patients. Previous studies have reported that incomplete description of interventions is a problem in reports of randomised, controlled trials in many health areas. One of these studies examined 133 trials of non-pharmacological interventions; the experimental intervention was inadequately described in over 60% of the trials and descriptions of the control interventions were even worse.
