Purpose: This study evaluated the impact of a quality improvement programme based on self- and peer assessment to justify nationwide implementation. Method: Four professional networks of physiotherapists in The Netherlands ( n = 379) participated in the programme, which consisted of two cycles of online self-assessment and peer assessment using video recordings of client communication and clinical records. Assessment was based on performance indicators that could be scored on a 5-point Likert scale, and online assessment was followed by face-to-face feedback discussions...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to observe the clinical outcomes of people who completed a 6-week outpatient interdisciplinary pain management programme and to determine whether a change in pain knowledge predicts these clinical outcomes (pain interference, pain severity, depression, and opioid intake). Method: A single-group, pretest-posttest analysis was conducted on data from 102 participants; five t -tests and three hierarchical multiple regressions were carried out. Results: Participants experienced significant improvements in pain knowledge, pain interference, pain severity, depression, and opioid intake between intake assessment and discharge, but change in pain knowledge did not significantly predict any clinical outcomes...

Purpose: People with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) and their family caregivers often react to the impact of the disease as an interdependent dyad. The aim of this exploratory study was to examine interdependence in the physical activity (PA) patterns of dyads affected by moderate to severe MS disability. Method: A total of 15 pairs of PwMS and their family caregivers wore accelerometers for 7 days. By collecting data simultaneously from both partners, we tested interdependence using the dyad as the unit of analysis...

Purpose: This article describes the content of and delivery methods for motor learning (ML) education and the attitudes and beliefs of instructors with regard to how ML is taught in Canadian physical therapy (PT) programmes. Method: A qualitative descriptive design was employed, using an online questionnaire and semi-structured telephone interviews. A descriptive content analysis was used to develop codes and themes. An online search of PT programme Web sites was conducted to supplement missing data and collect information from schools that did not participate in the online questionnaire or interview...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to collect and conduct a descriptive content analysis of the primary triggers of practical exam anxiety in Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) students in a Canadian university programme. Method: First and second-year MPT students were invited to reflect upon their top 5 sources or triggers of OSCE exam anxiety, collected in written format during a low-stress, low-examination period of their programme. All participants had participated in at least 3 OSCEs before providing data...

Purpose: The Functional Independence Measure (FIM) is widely used to assess persons post-stroke. The Quebec government has selected the Functional Autonomy Measurement System (SMAF) for use in all care settings. In this article, we propose simple equations to convert SMAF scores to FIM scores for persons undergoing post-stroke rehabilitation. Method: Persons post-stroke ( n =143) from three rehabilitation centres were assessed at admission and discharge using the FIM and SMAF. The sample was randomly split into derivation and validation data sets...

Purpose: We compared walking in hospital and on discharge from in-patient geriatric rehabilitation. Method: Participants included 28 adults (22 women) with a mean age of 85.4 (SD 6.8) years, ambulating independently with planned discharge to the community. Steps per day, short and long walking bouts, and cadence (steps per minute) were measured using an ActiGraph GT3X+ activity monitor (5 d in hospital, 5 d at home). Results: Steps per day did not differ between hospital and home (median difference=401; 95% CI: -364, 1,215; p =0...

Purpose: the purpose of the article is to produce a French-Canadian translation of the "OA Go Away" tool and to assess the validity of its contents as well as its test-retest reliability. "OA Go Away" is a customized tool that measures the various symptoms, their impact, and the physical activities of people with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee to improve self-care and help them be physically active. Method: Vallerand's cross-cultural validation methodology was used. First, professional translators and rehabilitation professionals produced a parallel reverse translation of the "OA Go Away" tool...

Purpose: A common factor in all forms of headache is the presence of myofascial trigger points (TrPs). The aim of this study was to compare the presentation of patients with cervicogenic headaches and patients with non-cervicogenic headaches in the sensitivity of TrPs in their upper trapezius, sternocleidomastoid, temporalis, and posterior cervical muscles. Method: This was a descriptive, cross-sectional study. The following variables were compared between patients with cervicogenic ( n =20) and patients with non-cervicogenic ( n =20) headaches: sensitivity (pain-pressure threshold) of TrPs in the upper trapezius, sternocleidomastoid, posterior cervical, and temporalis muscles (using a handheld, digital algometer); level of disability (using the Henry Ford Hospital Headache Disability Inventory questionnaire); demographics (age, sex); anthropometrics (BMI); and clinical presentation (duration and intensity of symptoms)...

Purpose: This study examined the validity of the Fitbit Flex activity monitor for step count and distance walked among post-cardiac surgery patients. Method: Participants ( n =20) from a major urban cardiac surgery centre were recruited 1-2 days before hospital discharge. The Fitbit Flex step count and distance walked outputs and video recording of each participant performing the 6-minute walk test were collected. Fitbit Flex output was compared with criterion measures of manual step count obtained from the video recording and manual measurement of distance walked...

Kyue-Nam Park, So-Yeon Park
Purpose: Reverse action (RA) of the ankle evertor muscle is when the proximal attachment moves toward the distal attachment, moving the lower leg in the frontal plane when the foot and ankle are fixed on the ground and inducing ankle eversion. The purpose of this study was to describe an RA method for measuring ankle evertor muscle performance. Method: Eighteen healthy individuals were recruited for this study. To assess the RA of their ankle evertors, the participants sat with their knees together and their feet firmly planted on the floor, then spread their knees as far apart as possible...
