Evidence-based practice-knowledge, attitude, behavior questionnaire
At the upcoming 2020 EFSHT Congress in Basel Switzerland, a group of speakers has been recruited for the session that focuses on “Knowledge Transfer: Implementation of Evidence Based Practice in the field of Hand Therapy”.As part of this session we would like to present information about “What hand therapists think about evidence based practice”. In order to do so, we would like to survey therapists across Europe to gain insight into therapists’ attitudes and perspectives about evidence based practice. EBP is defined as: using/applying EBP means the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. That is, looking up, appraising and applying both basic, factual information as well as disease-specific and condition-specific evidence.

Please answer with your true opinions and practices (i.e. Do not tell us what you THINK we want to hear, rather tell us what YOU really believe) and complete all the questions.

However, your responses may help us learn more about evidence based practice knowledge/attitudes/behaviour of hand therapists. We are also planing to send a summary report to the delegates of the member countries to be shared with you.

There are no foreseeable risks involved in participating in this study. Your survey answers will be sent to a link at Google survey where data will be stored in a password protected electronic format. Therefore, your responses will remain anonymous.
