See More

Introduction The study aimed to determine the demographic profile of clinical physical therapists in Metro Manila, their knowledge and attitudes towards evidence-based practice and relationship of their educational background to knowledge and attitudes towards evidence-based practice. 


Methods A quantitative correlational research design was utilized to describe the profile, knowledge and attitudes of clinical physical therapists, selected by purposive sampling, towards evidenced-based practice. An adapted Likert-type questionnaire was utilized to gather data necessary to the study. 


Results Majority of the 33 respondents had their basics of evidence-based practice as part of their academic preparation and had positive attitudes towards evidence-based practice. There was a weak non-significant correlation of educational background with knowledge of evidence-based practice and no correlation with attitudes towards evidence-based practice.


Conclusion Educational background may be a factor in terms of knowledge of evidence-based practice. However, educational background is not correlated with the personal attitudes towards evidence-based practice.
