Study information

Scientific title

Effectiveness of the tailored evidence based practice (EBP) training program for Filipino physiotherapists: a randomised controlled trial

Acronym

EBP for FilPTs

Study hypothesis

Study hypotheses:
1. The evidence based practice training program (EBP for FilPTs) will result in significant improvement in knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviour of Filipino physiotherapists
2. The EBP training program (EBP for FilPTs) will be a tested model of continuing education and uptake of evidence which is contextually relevant to Filipino physiotherapists, and which could be adapted readily for physiotherapists from other developing countries, and allied health professionals who are not first contact practitioners in any health care system
