Decision Making Aids
Translation of knowledge to practice in health care is a significant challenge. Clinicians want to provide evidence-informed management for their patients but many struggle with accessing, appraising and synthesising the vast array of literature available. Recent Knowledge Translation projects have lead to the development of decision aids synthesising the current evidence to guide clinical management of this patient population.
Some of these Clinical Decision Making Aids are now available in Physiopedia.
