Evidence-based practice appears to be well established in our profession. However, the main focus of evidence-based practice has been in the clinical and research realms; with clinicians and researchers often bearing the brunt of criticism concerning the lack of evidence supporting physiotherapy management practices. In the move towards global evidence-based practice, very little attention has been given to the practices of physiotherapy education programs in Australia. If universities and physiotherapy educators are put under the same evidence-based practice spotlight, how well do their educational programs and curricula rate? How defensible are their teaching and learning practices?
