An accessible text that discusses issues of qualitative research and the potential role for qualitative research in enhancing both the theoretical bases of occupational and physical therapy and the knowledge bases that inform evidence-based practice. It should be of use to students in the rehabilitation disciplines with examples drawn from research undertaken by physical therapists and occupational therapists. The outline has been strongly supported by reviewers from both OT and PT and the text aims to provide a resource for graduate students, researchers new to the field and to clinicians who seek a greater understanding of qualitative research and its use within the professions of occupational and physical therapy. Coverage and orientation occupational and physical therapists are being urged to adhere to "evidence-based practice" because clients and payers want services that are based on evidence that demonstrates their effectiveness. This publication aims to be a timely, practical and practice-related exploration of qualitative research, client-centred practice and evidence-based practice as these inter-relate and as they pertain to occupational and physical therapy.
