Reviews

Practical Tips in Finding the Evidence: An Allied Health Primer

In The Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice  (Vol 7 No 2), Dr Guy Nehrenz states:

This text brings evidence to the front lines of practice and describes the methods in a way that clinicians will find invaluable.

The Honourable John Hill MP, then Minister for Health in South Australia), at the official launch of the iCAHE textbook on 26 March 2009, stated:

This book addresses a gap in the current literature base as it provides a how-to-do it which guides readers through every step. It is easy to read, and has been designed as a practical aid to assist allied health students, clinicians, managers and researchers across 12 allied and complementary health disciplines to find the evidence.

Dr. Andrea Bialocerkowski, senior lecturer at the University of Melbourne, stated:

This textbook is a an extremely useful text for not only students but for busy allied health clinicians. It goes beyond the content of standard evidence-based practice texts, by demonstrating how the principles of evidence-based practice (searching, appraising and synthesising research evidence) can be used in the clinical setting to guide patient treatment. I therefore highly recommend this text.

When asked to write the forward for Practical Tips in Finding the Evidence: An Allied Health Primer, Nova Southeastern University's Professor of Health Science Dr. Guy Nehrenz stated:

The University of South Australia and the Centre for Allied Health Evidence are at the forefront of research into the evidence supporting the effectiveness of allied health treatment and therapeutics. The authors have compiled what I believe to be a global interdisciplinary teaching tool that will be used in many universities and medical venues. This text brings evidence to the front lines of practice and describes the methods in a way that clinicians will find invaluable. The methods described will begin to break down the walls with a step-by-step guide to challenging the status quo.
