Abstract/Summary This document presents best practice statements for aphasia rehabilitation developed by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funded Centre for Clinical Research Excellence (CCRE) in Aphasia Rehabilitation. The CCRE in Aphasia Rehabilitation is an Australian research group that has driven a national collaborative effort to improve the overall journey for people with aphasia (Thomas et al., 2014). Internationally, there is an international lack of highquality, detailed recommendations for aphasia rehabilitation (Rohde, Worrall, & Le Dorze, 2013). Nevertheless, clinicians are required to make decisions daily about how to manage their clients with aphasia. Lack of agreement on what constitutes ‘best care’ is a likely contributor to the wide variation of care received by people with aphasia. The CCRE in Aphasia Rehabilitation has developed 82 best practice statements to improve the consistency of care and these statements form the basis for the Australian Aphasia Rehabilitation Pathway (AARP: www.aphasiapathway.com.au). The AARP contains these evidence‐based statements along with resources in a dynamic web‐based implementation tool. To validate the statements, the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method (RAM) (Fitch et al., 2001) was used and an expert panel of nine aphasia researchers, clinicians and policy makers rated each statement’s ‘appropriateness’ on a scale of 19 (not appropriate to highly appropriate). Statements with a median score greater than 7 have been included in this document.
