"This book is very comprehensive and easy to read despite the complexity of the subject. It provides clear theory illustrated by concrete examples, practical strategies and tools. Information is presented logically. It highlights the importance of an evidence-based practice; it recognizes that EBP requires much work and must overcome same barriers in clinical settings; and provides concrete ways to achieve this. It is a great one-stop resource, useful for students as well as novice and senior therapists. It would be a great asset to any clinical or academic setting."
— Paulette Guitard, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy
Together, they (the authors) have produced a helpful book for any allied health professional. Whether you are enrolled in a class or reading the text on your own, this book is very user-friendly because of its consistency across chapters and lack of repetition, despite many authors. I found reading it through cover-to-cover gave me an overview of where the editors were headed, but if I needed information on a particular subject, such as a statistical measure or a database, it was easily accessible and understandable by going directly to a particular chapter.
— Maggie Fillmore, DPT, PT, FAAOMPT, OCS, ADVANCE for Physical Therapists & PT Assistants
If you are in need of a better understanding of evidence based decision making, the authors offer pertinent information on interpreting and communicating evidence… Dr. Law and Dr. MacDermid have made a major contribution to the professional literature by offering what could be considered a full course for those who need to better understand evidence-based rehabilitation.

Reviews from previous edition:
This book is an excellent resource for students and clinicians who are looking for methods to incorporate evidence-based practice into their clinical skills.
— Debbie Field, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy
As an introduction to evidence-based practice, this text is right on target.
…very important reading for any physical therapist who wants to engage in high-quality practice.
— Joseph Lucca, PT, PhD, Physical Therapy
…a valuable resource for students and practitioners, since evidence-based practice is justified as part of the professional knowledge base and clinical reasoning process. Each chapter contains excellent summaries, web links, and learning and exploration activities for each topic.
— Andrea Bilics, PhD, OTR, Occupational Therapy in Health Care
…the authors have met their cooperative goal of defining and providing tools for integrating evidence-based practice in order to deliver uncompromised care.
— Karin J. Edwards, PT, Advance for Physical Therapists & PT Assistants
This…text is of high quality and one of the most comprehensive on the market focused on evidence-based rehabilitation geared specifically to the rehabilitation professionals of occupational and physical therapy…I feel the book is very worthwhile and provides a great deal of contemporary information on the subject from the pragmatics of how to find and use the literature to a theoretical discussion of why rehabilitation professionals need to incorporate evidence in their clinical decision-making.
— Ingrid M. Provident, EdD, OTR/L, Duquesne University, Pittsburg, PA, Occupational Therapy in Health Care
"This text provides an excellent resource for clinicians who require further knowledge on integrating research findings into practice and for those who are involved in quality improvement projects within their workplace. The best feature of the text is undeniably the vast appendices that include example appraisals of evidence and draft forms on "how to" appraise evidence of all types. Overall, the book give an excellent review of EBP and will be useful for practitioners who wish to improve the depth and quality of their clinical reasoning skills."
