Podium Block Sessions from Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) Congress 2021:


Podium Block #1

Is Yoga Feasible and Beneficial for People Living With HIV? Results of a Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial
SpeakerDr. Adria Quigley
Session Description: A presentation of the results of a randomized pilot trial investigating the feasibility and impact of a yoga intervention on cognitive ability, health-related quality of life, physical function, mental health, and antiretroviral adherence among people living with HIV. Our work provides preliminary evidence of feasibility and benefits of yoga for people living with HIV.

The Experience of Physical Activity Among Métis Older Adults
SpeakerLiris Smith
Session Description: This abstract is the presentation of a community-based research project (as part of PhD requirements) in the northern Saskatchewan community of Île-à-la-Crosse. Métis older adults described their experiences with physical activity throughout their lifespan, which was synthesized into three primary themes. The congruencies and dissonances with the ICF framework and the conceptual theories of physical literacy were also examined.  

Development and Validation of the Fracture Risk Home Care (FRS-HC): A Tool to Predict One-Year Incident Fracture for Home Care Recipients
SpeakerDr. Caitlin McArthur
Session Description: We developed the Fracture Risk Scale - Home Care (FRS-HC) to help clinicians identify home care recipients at high-risk for fracture in the next year. We used data from routine home care assessments, hospital admissions, and emergency room visits and developed the scale through decision tree analysis. Our results demonstrate that the FRS-HC is a valid tool to predict fracture.

Using Knowledge Translation to Identify and Address Barriers to the Use of Resources Designed to Support Best Practice in Pain Science by Canadian Physiotherapists
SpeakersJanet HollyTori EtheridgeGeoff Bostick, & Natasha Campbell.
Session Description: This project assessed barriers and facilitators regarding the uptake of knowledge tools created by the Pain Science Division (PSD) of the CPA amongst the PSD membership. Knowledge Translation science derived strategies were selected and undertaken to specifically target the most common barriers. An understanding of how to make these tools more usable for therapists will enhance their impact augmenting pain evidence-based management. 

The Exploration of the Impact of Interprofessional Education: Dental Hygiene, Pharmacy, Nursing, and Physiotherapy Student Perspectives
SpeakerDr. Moni Fricke
Session Description: An interprofessional education strategy places close to 600 learners from nine different health profession programs into longitudinal teams, delivering curriculum through blended learning activities. Program evaluation to date has focused on quantitative measures of team development and individual learner interprofessional socialization. This project shares results of a qualitative analysis of diverse learners’ lived experiences of interprofessional collaborative education.

The Outcomes and Utility of Decision-Making Aids in Patients Seeking Care for Hip and/or Knee Osteoarthritis: A Scoping Review
SpeakerArianne Simmonne PaineNatalie BertrandTheodora Chan & Katrina Majetic
Session Description: Decision making aids are tools that work to facilitate collaboration and help patients make informed choices about their care by providing information and clarifying values. This scoping review examines whether or not decision-making aids used with patients with knee and hip osteoarthritis impact outcomes at the patient and health care system levels.

Podium Block #2

​Generating Resilience to Injuries Through Training (GRIT): A Feasibility Study
SpeakerDr. Eric Robitaille
Session Description: This study investigated the feasibility of implementing an evidence-based training program, compared to control, during an infantry course. Evidence-based training posed a manageable demand on resources without compromising military operations, with participants reporting 30% fewer overuse injuries, 296 fewer limited duty days, and 11 fewer attritions than control. Evidence-based training should be considered for a full experimental trial. 

My Weight Enters the Room Before I Do: A Public Engagement Strategy for Patients Experiencing Weight Stigma
SpeakerLiz Harvey
Session Description: This project used an arts-informed approach as a public engagement strategy with people who experienced weight-stigmatizing behaviour in physiotherapy. We co-created a digital gallery of images and audio to use in a knowledge translation activity with physiotherapists. Group members felt safe and supported throughout the process and group cohesion was achieved with the group process, size, and moderators. 

Clinical Instructors' Experiences When Working With and Assessing Students Performing Below Expectations in Physical Therapy Clinical Internships
SpeakerBrenda Mori & Martine Quesnel
Session Description: This abstract is a summary of a research study that was performed exploring clinical instructors’ experiences when working with and assessing students performing below expectations in physical therapy clinical internships.

How Does Pelvic Floor Muscle Training Lead to Improvement of Stress Urinary Incontinence Symptoms in Females?
SpeakerFlavia Antonio
Session Description: The purposes of this study were to determine if any facets of Levator ani muscles function, measured through the PERFECT-Scheme and/or through pelvic morphology measured using transperineal ultrasound imaging: (i) are associated with the severity of signs/symptoms of SUI in females; (ii) improve following a 12-week PFMT intervention; and (iii) demonstrate improvements that are associated with improvements in SUI signs/symptoms. 

The Search for the Holy Grail: A Systematic Review of Health-Related Quality of Life Measures for Active Youth
SpeakerChristina Le
Session Description: We conducted a systematic review to find the most suitable patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) to assess health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of active youth. After following the COSMIN guidelines to evaluate measurement properties, interpretability, and feasibility of 18 identified PROMs, no PROM was definitively recommended. Three HRQoL PROMs are recommended over others due to sufficient structural validity and internal consistency.

What is the Acceptability and Usability of an Online Educational Resource Alongside Physiotherapy to Support Patients With Patellofemoral Pain?
SpeakerDr. Allison Ezzat
Session Description: This mixed-methods study describes the acceptability and usability of an online resource for patellofemoral pain in patients and physiotherapists in Canada.
