Domains of engagement include implicit and explicit safety, verbal and non-verbal communication, and presence and active listening, among others. Upon completion of this course, one should have tools to begin auditing their patient/client interaction via self-reflection to identify limiting factors in developing positive therapeutic relationships.

Dr. Maxi Miciak strives to positively influence the care patients receive and the use of research evidence in health services and policy decision-making. Her work has broad reach, extending from clinical to system levels. Drawing upon her experiences as a physical therapist, Maxi’s research interests probe the factors that influence provision of care from social and systems (e.g. care models) perspectives.

Her expertise has resulted in numerous invitations to speak at local, national, and international webinars, events, and conferences in physical therapy and inter-professionally. Maxi also works to advance the nascent area of research impact assessment. She has collaborated with local, national, and international health system stakeholders to co-develop and implement frameworks to assess research impact on informed decision-making and the scale and spread of research and innovation in the healthcare system.
