    Re: Effectiveness of Electrotherapy

    The opening line really tells you what standpoint this committee is taking... I'd be interested in reading something a bit more objective...

    Cheers,
    Ray

    Re: Effectiveness of Electrotherapy

    I would think it's quite objective. "effectiveness" can mean effective or non effective =)

    Re: Effectiveness of Electrotherapy

    Hello Bob,

    Thank you for this post. It sounds pretty interesting. Even though I would rather check out the research. What is the name of the author,a nd the article title?

    Why not make this a standard for all the posts here about scientifi literature? (in our study the teachers are crazy about it - and in this case it makes some sense, because also 169 RCT's can be reviewed in very different ways...)

    Cheers!
    Kai

    Re: Effectiveness of Electrotherapy

    What tools do you use for outcomes assessments in your studies and why?
