In November 2019 the FASHIoN Trial was included in the PEDro Top 5 Trials from 2014-2019

To celebrate PEDro’s 20th birthday they have identified the five most important randomised controlled trials in physiotherapy published in the years 2014-2019. The trials were nominated by PEDro users, and an independent panel of international trialists judged the nominations received.

These ground-breaking trials are from a broad cross-section of physiotherapy practice. The trials answer important clinical questions that will change the way people are treated for a variety of conditions seen by physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals. All of them mark important milestones in the evolution of physiotherapy treatment.
