Item description for Orthopaedic Clinical Examination: An Evidence Based Approach for Physical Therapists (Netter Clinical Science) by Joshua Cleland...
Evidence-based practice is becoming an increasingly important topic in physical therapy clinical practice, especially as the cost of health care continues to accelerate. As a result, evidence is now being incorporated into all aspects of physical therapy patient/client management including examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention. Designed as a handy, quick-reference guide, ORTHOPAEDIC CLINICAL EXAMINATION: AN EVIDENCE-BASED APPROACH FOR PHYSICAL THERAPISTS takes a uniquely visual, evidence-tables approach to make it easy for clinicians to locate relevant evidence of the diagnostic utility of commonly utilized tests and measures.
Features 281 evidence-tables with essential information clinicians need to make appropriate decisions on clinical tests for their patients.
Provides information specific to the diagnostic accuracy of specific tests ... measures that have been investigated in controlled studies ... and each test's sensitivity, specificity, and likelihood ratios. In addition, each table offers an easy-to-follow guide to the performance and scoring of every test and measure.
Offers information on the patient population and reference standard that was utilized in the corresponding study, with an overview of the study results and their applicability to the clinician's environment.
Includes 169 Netter and Netter-style images and 173 photographs assure that clinicians have an understanding of the relative anatomy, arthrology, myology, and neurology behind the examination process.

Reviews - What do customers think about Orthopaedic Clinical Examination: An Evidence Based Approach for Physical Therapists (Netter Clinical Science)?
A must own for all PTs Sep 26, 2008
If you are concerned about evidence based practice you must start with this text. Dr. Cleland has assembled the current literature to support the use of many of our clinical measures and offers clear comparisons regarding sensitivity and specificity. This text needs to be in every clinician's library. A fabulous text with clear relevance to the PT.
Excellent evidence based text. Dec 1, 2006
From the introduction of basic concepts such as likelihood ratios and predictive values to the simple table format with the always beautiful Netter illustrations, this is the ortho exam text to have. I just hope the next edition is being planned to keep pace with new research. Thank you to Joshua Cleland for putting this together for us.
great book, better understand your research and stats!!! Jul 29, 2006
I bought this book on a recommendation to study for the physical therapy OCS exam. So far, this book is very clinically relevant. Great pics and descriptions, but I don't understand all of the statisics and research. There is a chapter on the statistics, but I was still uncertain of interpretations, so I had to do further reading in research texts and web pages to help me understand. If you have a stong research background, then you'd love this book. If not, you may find it slightly frustrating to understand all the areas of the book. Also, remember this is based mostly on Examination and not much on treatment. This would probably be a great book for students in a PT program that is based on evidence based practice.
