Evolving Trends in Physiotherapy Research Publications between 1995 and 2015.
Abstract Purpose: The aim of this study was to comparatively analyze evolving trends in physiotherapy (PT) research publications (excluding case reports and epidemiological and qualitative studies) between 1995 and 2015, inclusively in terms of research design, funding support, age groups, and health conditions. Method: This was an observational study using PubMed-indexed data. Combinations of medical subject headings identified yearly research publications for PT and comparator fields: human-based health and physical rehabilitation. Yearly publications data were extracted, relative percentages were computed, and ...

Recovery of Sensorimotor Functional Outcomes at Discharge from In-Patient Rehabilitation in Three Stroke Units in the Province of Quebec.
This study aimed to portray the characteristics, process variables, and sensorimotor outcomes of patients who had received their usual post-stroke in-patient rehabilitation in three stroke rehabilitation units in Quebec in 2013-2014. Method: We assessed patients (n = 264) at admission and discharge with a subset of a standardized assessment toolkit consisting of observational and performance-based assessment tools. Results: The patients, with a mean age of 60.3 (SD 15.4) years, were admitted 27.7 (SD 8.4) days post-stroke onset. They had a mean admission FIM score of 83.0 (SD 24.0), a mean length of stay of 48.4 ...

Enabling Access to Rehabilitation in Acute Care: Exploring Physiotherapists' and Occupational Therapists' Perspectives on Patient Care When Assistants Become the Primary Therapy Providers.
Conclusions: Participants described the process of adapting their professional skills and behaviours as they evolved into the role of manager of therapy care. Occupational therapists and physiotherapists recognized the potential for occupational therapist assistants (OTAs) and physiotherapist assistants (PTAs) to provide more frequent and consistent care. The therapists highlighted the necessity of ensuring that effective working processes and interactions between the therapist and the OTAs and PTAs were in place to ensure high-quality patient care.

Designing, Implementing, and Evaluating a Practice Tutor Internship Model during an Acute Care Clinical Internship.
Conclusions: On the basis of CIs' and students' self-reports, the piloted practice tutor model was perceived to facilitate students' clinical reasoning and collaborative learning skills. In addition, during the 5-week internship, the number of patients seen each day by the individual CIs and their students was not reduced, with a trend toward increased patient attendance. There was also a trend toward CIs having the same or more time to manage their caseload and work with the students compared with a non-practice tutor internship model. Recommendations to improve this model in future implementations are made. PMID: 32...

Effect of the Triceps Brachii Facilitation Technique on Scapulohumeral Muscle Activation during Reach and Point in a Healthy Population.
Abstract Purpose: Neurodevelopmental techniques are commonly used in upper limb rehabilitation, but little evidence supports the facilitation techniques associated with this concept. This exploratory study determined whether a facilitation technique at the triceps muscle affected scapulothoracic muscle activity during reach in healthy participants compared with self-selected posture and reach. The secondary aim was to determine whether muscle activation levels differed between the facilitation technique and the optimized posture or guided movement. We also hypothesized that activity in the scapular stabilizers (lo...

Understanding Physiotherapists' Intention to Counsel Clients with Chronic Pain on Exercise: A Focus on Psychosocial Factors.
Abstract Purpose: Twenty percent of Canadians experience chronic pain. Exercise is an effective management strategy, yet participation levels are low. Physiotherapists can be key to counselling clients to engage in long-term unsupervised exercise. Yet, investigations that identify psychosocial factors related to physiotherapists' intention to counsel are lacking. The purpose of this study was to examine whether physiotherapists' knowledge of chronic pain, beliefs about pain, and self-efficacy to counsel on exercise predicted their intention to counsel clients with chronic pain on exercise. Method: Practicing physi...

Conclusions: The MBT is reliable and valid in pwMS. MDC values will facilitate assessing the effectiveness of treatment.

Perspectives of Racialized Physiotherapists in Canada on Their Experiences with Racism in the Physiotherapy Profession.
Conclusions: Participants described interpersonal racism often mediated by location and accent and experiences of internalized racism causing self-doubt, but they most commonly detailed institutionalized racism. PT was experienced as being infused with Whiteness, which participants typically responded to by downplaying or ignoring. The findings from this study can be used to stimulate conversations in the Canadian PT community, especially among those in leadership positions, about not only acknowledging racism as an issue but also taking action against it with further research, advocacy, and training.

Inter-Instrument Reliability and Agreement of Fitbit Charge Measurements of Heart Rate and Activity at Rest, during the Modified Canadian Aerobic Fitness Test, and in Recovery.
Conclusions: The Charge HR heart rate variable demonstrated excellent inter-instrument reliability compared with the ZB and provided good levels of agreement. The steps taken and energy expenditure variables displayed excellent reliability measures between Charge HR and Fitbit One. Our findings may be used to capture field-based wireless measures of heart rate in various phases and provide information about possibly using the Charge HR and ZB devices interchangeably.

Investigating the Test-Retest Reliability and Validity of Hand-Held Dynamometry for Measuring Knee Strength in Older Women with Knee Osteoarthritis.
Conclusions: HHD is a reliable tool for capturing knee extension and flexion in individuals with OA. Because of lower agreement, HHD might be best suited for evaluating within-subject strength changes rather than true strength scores. However, gold-standard extension strength magnitudes may reasonably be predicted from regression equations (r 2 = 0.82). PMID: 31719719 [PubMed] (Source: Physiotherapy Canada)
