Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Stroke Rehabilitation: Benefits and Clinical Utility Perceived by Physiotherapists and Individuals with Stroke
Conclusions: Both physiotherapists and patients described the benefit of having CPET available to support them as they participated in exercise in a stroke rehabilitation setting. Physiotherapists would benefit from having educational tools to support their interpretation and application of test results, and patients would benefit from improved communication and education to support their understanding of the relevance of CPET to their rehabilitation goals. Future research should explore these findings in other stroke rehabilitation settings.PMID:34456420 | PMC:PMC8370738 | DOI:10.3138/ptc-2019-0070 (Source: Physiotherapy Canada)

A Focus Group- and Patient-Driven Study to Understand Patients' and Health Care Providers' Perspectives on Services for People with Amputation
Conclusions: Amputation is not just a one-time medical procedure; people with amputation need lifelong support from health care providers and the community. Clear pathways of care, access to immediate support, amputee-specific education for health care providers, better patient education, increased physical therapy, and enhanced resources and care were identified as areas in need of improvement. This study will, we hope, form the basis of future research to continually improve the quality of care and support for people living with amputation.PMID:34456441 | PMC:PMC8370689 | DOI:10.3138/ptc-2019-0054 (Source: Physiotherapy Canada)
