Welcome to PEDro
PEDro is the Physiotherapy Evidence Database. PEDro is a free database of over 28,000 randomised trials, systematic reviews and clinical practice guidelines in physiotherapy. For each trial, review or guideline, PEDro provides the citation details, the abstract and a link to the full text, where possible. All trials on PEDro are independently assessed for quality. These quality ratings are used to quickly guide users to trials that are more likely to be valid and to contain sufficient information to guide clinical practice. PEDro is produced by the Centre for Evidence-Based Physiotherapy at The George Institute for Global Health.
In October 2014 the PEDro database will have its 15th anniversary. The Centre for Evidence-Based Physiotherapy has decided to recognise this occasion by identifying 15 of the most significant randomised trials in physiotherapy ever published. We invite PEDro users to nominate randomised trials in physiotherapy for consideration before Friday 29 August 2014.
Search the PEDro database
There are four search pages for the PEDro database. Two were designed for health professionals (simple search and advanced search). One was designed to search PEDro in combination with OTseeker, PsycBITE and speechBITE (Allied Health Evidence). One was designed for consumers of physiotherapy and can be accessed via the Physiotherapy Choices web-site.
Find out the latest updates that have been made to the PEDro database via a range of tailored feeds.
