Abstract

The importance of evidence-based clinical practice has led to an effort by ASHA to develop a series of systematic reviews of treatment research to serve as a resource for its members. The first review has centered on constraint-induced language therapy for aphasia. The procedures implemented in the systematic review pertaining to the quality of treatment research investigations have the potential to incite controversy and discussion in the community of aphasia treatment researchers. This presentation is designed to engage the audience in a discussion that will influence the format of study appraisal guidelines for ongoing systematic reviews.
