New Resources from the Library-PEDro

PEDro is the Physiotherapy Evidence Database. PEDro is a free database of over 36,000 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.

The latest clinical practice guidelines, systematic reviews and clinical trials for each area of physiotherapy and for selected topics in physiotherapy include:
  • Cardiothoracics
  • Continence and women’s health
  • Ergonomics and occupational health
  • Gerontology
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Neurology
  • Oncology
  • Orthopaedics
  • Paediatrics
  • Sports
  • Chronic pain
  • Chronic respiratory disease
  • Neurotrauma
  • Whiplash
