Courses - Scientific Inquiry I PHYT 5202   Scientific Inquiry I
The purpose of this course is to develop fundamental knowledge and skills for evidence-based physiotherapy. The focus is on application of scientific principles in physiotherapy practice, including critical appraisal and synthesis of best-available evidence for translation to patient-centered physiotherapy practice. The emphasis is on integration of patient values/circumstances with the best-available evidence, and clinical expertise to establish and implement evidence-based physiotherapy. This course provides a foundation and framework for using scientific inquiry in concurrent, and all subsequent course work including clinical experiences; this approach confirms our philosophy that critical appraisal and best practice is core to physiotherapy practice.
