Motor learning in clinical practice:             Design of a Delphi study

Facilitating motor learning in patients during clinical practice is complex, especially in people with cognitive impairments. General principles of motor learning are available for therapists to use in their practice. However, the translation of evidence from the different fields of motor learning for the use in clinical practice is problematic due to lack of uniformity in definition and taxonomy of terms related to motor learning.

The objective of this study is to perform a Delphi technique to reach consensus on definitions, descriptions and taxonomy used within motor learning and to explore experts’ opinions and experiences on the application of motor learning in practice.
