One of the challenges of today’s clinical practice is the ability to apply information about current research findings to our examination, evaluation and treatment. When reading research articles, I often have an internal dialogue that involves many questions. Does this relate to my clinical practice? Do the subjects represent my clients? Was the intervention defined in a way that I can duplicate? One of the challenges of research for neurological rehabilitation is that neurology is a complex subject and neuro rehabilitation even more so. While I may be able to organize my critical thinking for the clinical management of my clients based on their diagnoses, much variability comes into play based on the uniqueness of their clinical presentation, their families, their personalities, and the world they live in.
