Policy statement: Evidence-based practice

The World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) believes that physical therapists have a responsibility to ensure that the management of patients/clients, carers and communities is based on the best available evidence. They also have a responsibility not to use techniques and technologies that have been shown to be ineffective or unsafe.

Evidence should be integrated with clinical experience, taking into consideration beliefs, values and the cultural context of the local environment, as well as patient/client preferences. (EBP) is more easily achievable in environments that embrace and promote it.
