Choosing wisely: Increasing outcome measure use in your practice...and sustaining itConnecticut Chapter APTA (2018)
Standardized outcome measures (OM) have been emphasized in physical therapy practice to optimize patient evaluation; however, a lack of regular use of OM exists. Synthesized evidence-based resources, such as Rehabilitation Measures Database™, EDGE Taskforce recommendations and the recently published Outcome Measure Clinical Practice Guidelines exist to help clinicians select and interpret the most appropriate OM for their patients. In order to disseminate this information, knowledge translation (KT) interventions highlight strategies that may improve the use of OM by physical therapists (PT). The purpose of this course is to explore synthesized resources, describe the literature in physical therapy related to KT and quality improvement (QI) and provide examples of implementation of KT-QI initiatives using these resources to increase the use of OM by PTs.
