. Demonstration of one single case limits representativeness. Relying on a single case is considered acceptable for a study as ours, as the purpose was to demonstrate the use of a particular methodology ( 17 ). Another limitation is related to the bias of recall. Respondents are often asked to recall behaviours that took place over a broad period of time. Recent contacts are more likely reported into the network, and forgetting to name people is another potentially significant problem ( 14 , 15 ). In the analysis of the ESN, the example relies on the accuracy of reports from

population-based survival for the comparable calendar years and populations vary considerably. In groups of patients, survival represents the proportion of patients still alive after a certain period of time since the diagnosis. In population-based survival analyses, we tend to estimate only the dying probability of patients with a disease investigated (i.e. the probability of dying from cancer) and thus tend to avoid all non-cancer causes of death. Such survival is called net cancer survival, and it is methodologically most correctly estimated using PoharPerme method

). Figure 1 According to the described search strategy, 40 relevant articles were read in full (Figure 1) . 2.2 Data Description Qualitative methodology was used for the article analysis. In the first step, the relevant articles were extracted in the form of a specifically designed table: the described forms of F use (systemic, topical or both), diversity of the described F agents, and observed population group. In the second step, we summarised the main results on various uses of F as preventive agents over the previous 30 years. 3 Results 3

Research in the field of physiotherapy creates some controversy. This article seeks to explore and find out the solutions for this issue. Two aspects are discussed: the difficulties in reconciling the specificity of physiotherapy research with methodological standards and the concerns related to patients’ participation in the research. These problems affect the physiotherapists involved in the creation of ethically and methodologically valuable research project. Physiotherapists conducting research struggle to reconcile two sets of values: the role of a researcher and the role of a professional helper. This article discusses the possibility of creating a valuable research project based on the methodological standards within EBM paradigm in relation to the practical aspects of physiotherapy, such as therapy effectiveness and patient-therapist interaction.
