Best Practice or Evidence-Misinformed Physiotherapy?
How would you rate yourself on a scale of evidence-based physiotherapy, from 0 (blindly adhering to every evidence) to 10 (applying them wisely into shared clinical decision-making)?
Anybody who’s serious about being properly informed by evidence, rather than misleadingly driven, should take a closer look at the crucial pearls and pitfalls discussed in this course.
Speaker: Dr. Jean-Louise Larochelle
Dr. Jean-Louise Larochelle had completed a PhD in public health with an epidemiology concentration to become skilled in appraising and applying research properly for his clinical practice.
Today, it has been very helpful in his part-time career as a physiotherapist (17 years) in a musculoskeletal private practice setting and as an assistant professor at the University of Montreal (more than eight years teaching evidenced-based rehabilitation at undergraduate and post-graduate levels). It has also helped him to participate in knowledge translation activities (congresses, publications in professional journals, websites); explore innovative interventions; act as an expert witness for Quebec’s College of physiotherapy; and aim for the best quality of care with his clients.
Throughout these experiences, he has witnessed the great power and possibilities that come with evidence, but the equivalent amount of responsibilities in order not to misguide students, patients, colleagues, decision-makers, and even himself.
This course is brought to you by the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) and is intended for physiotherapists, though other healthcare providers are welcome.
