Finding Research Articles in PT

Critique of a Research Article (assignment from the course)

Identify your interested clinical problem (e.g., diagnostic or therapeutic problem). Find a peer-reviewed article targeting your interested problem and proposing a pioneer methodology applied in PT field (e.g., modified or novel intervention, equipment, evaluation etc.). The article should be recently published in a scientific journal (within the past 3 years).
(Note from your instructor: No review article, no case study, but study with experiments-based research with statistics results).

Literature Review and Research Proposal

You'll be writing your group project proposal and literature review, so it's helpful to read a few Cochrane Reviews and Cochrane Protocols from The Cochrane Library. Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews, the gold standard in evidence-based health care.  Hopefully you'll be inspired as you start to think about your research project, write your research proposal, and later conduct your research and complete your project.
