Clinical practice in physiatry is ideally evidence based, and evidence-based physiatry is the best intersection of relevant and reliable research results, clinical acumen, and patient preferences. Presently, PubMed indexes 20,000 articles annually characterized as rehabilitation relevant. To keep up, a variety of implementable evidence synthesis tools are available. This brief report summarizes common evidence synthesis tools—systematic reviews (SR) and meta-analysis, and implementation aids that can assist in using them in clinical practice.
