Abstract

Treatment fidelity is a measure of the reliability of the administration of an intervention in a treatment study, and has important linkages and implications for the ultimate implementation of evidence-supported interventions. In this study, we examined aphasia treatment studies published in the last 10 years for the reporting of treatment fidelity. We found that only 10% of studies over the last 10 years reported treatment fidelity, which is less than other related disciplines. We discuss the means by which we assess fidelity and recommend the consistent reporting of treatment fidelity in all treatment studies.
