Goff, Rachel and Hinckley, Jacqueline and Douglas, Natalie (2012) Systematic Evaluation of the Evidence on Aphasia Group Treatments. [Clinical Aphasiology Paper]
A systematic review is one of the most important contributions to clinical decision-making for evidence-based practice (EBP). Studies focused on aphasia group treatment, published since 1981, were entered into a six-step systematic review (Dollaghan et al, 2007), to evaluate the overall quality and weight of the evidence. This review suggests that there are short-term impairment-level benefits of group aphasia treatments but that there is insufficient evidence to make conclusions about long-term outcomes or outcomes related to activities and life participation. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.
