PEDro is a free database of over 45,000 randomised trials, systematic reviews and clinical practice guidelines in physiotherapy.
For each trial, review or guideline, PEDro provides the citation details, the abstract and a link to the full text, where possible.
All trials on PEDro are independently assessed for quality.
These quality ratings are used to quickly guide users to trials that are more likely to be valid and to contain sufficient information to guide clinical practice.
PEDro is produced by the Institute for Musculoskeletal Health, School of Public Health at the University of Sydney and is hosted by Neuroscience Research Australia.
And did we mention… this is free?! Find PEDro at https://www.pedro.org.au/
Now To celebrate PEDro’s 20th birthday they’ve have identified the five most important randomised controlled trials in physiotherapy published in the last 5 years. These trials were nominated by PEDro users, and an independent panel of international trialists judged the nominations received.
Now YOU get to take advantage of hearing a little more about these standout pieces of work… by the people who created them.
