This course uses motivational interviewing (MI) and cardiovascular/pulmonary physical therapy (PT) as a lens to evidence-based decisions. We shall discuss the current state of evidence in clinical practice and examine effective methods for article search, retrieval, and appraisal. We shall examine the quantity and quality of evidence examining MI in cardiovascular/pulmonary PT. Effect size and/or numbers needed treat will be examined to appreciate the extent to which MI is effective in cardiovascular/pulmonary PT. Instructional methods include lecture, student participant, and question/answer.
Upon course completion, students will
1. Appreciate the growth of evidence in physical therapy
2. Recognize challenges to “bench to bedside” knowledge translation
3. Recognize the importance of MeSH terms in searching the PubMed database

5. Appreciate the importance of triage in article selection
6. Distinguish among PubMed, PubMed Central, and the MeSH databases
7. Appreciate the scope and quality of evidence examining motivational interviewing for cardiovascular/pulmonary PT
