The ED in question is not the author's place of work. METHOD: A Likert-type questionnaire was used to gain a total attitude score (TAS), which was analysed in relation to participants' gender, age, professional background, level of education and years of experience in the ED, as well as previous and current contact with emergency nurse practitioners and/or ANPs...

INTRODUCTION: There are very few opportunities for long-term, comprehensive postgraduate education in developing countries because of fiscal and human resource constraints. Therefore, physiotherapists have little opportunity following graduation to advance their skills through the improvement of clinical reasoning and treatment planning and application. BACKGROUND: To address the need for sustainable advanced instruction in physiotherapy within the country, a postgraduate Residency program was initiated in Nairobi, Kenya in 2012...

Methods A retrospective audit (October 2012-September 2013) was performed of data from three metropolitan public hospital EDs to compare patients with low back pain seen by AMP and non-AMP clinicians. Outcome measures included ED length of stay, ED wait time, admission rates and re-presentation to the ED...

BACKGROUND: Marketing communication and brand identity is a fundamental principle of advertising and end-user engagement. Health researchers have begun to apply this principle to trial recruitment in primary care. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether a Teaser Campaign using a series of postcards in advance of a conventional mail-out increases the number of primary care clinics that engage with a clinical trial. METHODS: Embedded randomised recruitment trial across primary care clinics (general practitioners and physiotherapists) in the Sydney metropolitan area...

BACKGROUND: Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders represent a great burden on the health care system. The use of physiotherapists in their autonomous roles and in advanced practice roles may help increase access to care. Thus, the aim of this survey was to assess the perceptions of a university community sample within the province of Quebec about physiotherapists as primary care practitioners and advanced practice physiotherapists (APPs) for the treatment of patients with musculoskeletal disorders...

BACKGROUND: Evidence-based practice (EBP) has been widely implemented in differing areas of physiotherapy. Nevertheless, few studies have investigated EBP-related barriers amongst Latin-American physical therapists working in primary care. The primary objective of this study was to describe the current state concerning perceived barriers engagement in EBP among physical therapy in Colombia. A secondary objective was to identify factors associated with barriers to implementation EBP. METHODS: A cross-sectional online survey was conducted...

Poor diet quality is implicated in almost every disease and health issue. And yet, in most advanced market economies diet quality is poor, with a minority meeting guidelines for healthy eating. Poor diet is thus responsible for substantial disease burden. Societies have at their disposal a range of strategies to influence diet behaviors. These can be classified into: (i) population level socio-educational approaches to enhance diet knowledge; (ii) pricing incentives (subsidies on healthy foods, punitive taxes on unhealthy foods); (iii) regulations to modify the food environment, and (iv) the provision of clinical dietetic services...

OBJECTIVE: With the rising demand for Orthopaedics in the healthcare sector, service delivery innovations need to be explored to accommodate the increasing workload. Senior Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists have the specialised skills in the assessment of musculoskeletal conditions to determine the impact of surgery on patient outcomes. The aim of the present study was to compare outcomes between a physiotherapy-led arthroplasty review clinic (PT clinic) and the traditional model of orthopaedic surgeon review (OS clinic) after hip and knee replacement...

Marketing is now a vital issue for all sectors of the physiotherapy profession. Changing public attitudes to health care, increasing competition from many quarters, advances in medical science and progressive deregulation of the profession are some of the trends necessitating a marketing orientation. Marketing is essentially about the management of the relationship between physiotherapists and their clients, where clients may be patients, doctors, employers, rehabilitation providers or others. Marketing enables physiotherapists to increase their understanding of clients' needs and to use this information to improve the quality, delivery and value of their product...

Approximately one in three people over the age of 65 will fall each year, resulting in significant financial, physical, and emotional cost on the individual, their family, and society. Currently, falls are managed using on-body sensors and alarm pendants to notify others when a falls event occurs. However these technologies do not prevent a fall from occurring. There is now a growing focus on falls risk assessment and preventative interventions. Falls risk is currently assessed in a clinical setting by expert physiotherapists, geriatricians, or occupational therapists following the occurrence of an injurious fall...

BACKGROUND: Since the last decade there has been a gradual change of boundaries of health professions in providing arthritis care. In Canada, some facilities have begun to adopt new arthritis care models, some of which involve physiotherapists (PT) working in extended roles. However, little is known about PTs' interests in these new roles. The primary objective of this survey was to determine the interests among orthopaedic physiotherapists (PTs) in being a certified arthritis therapist, a PT specialized in arthritis, or an extended scope practitioner in rheumatology, and to explore the associated factors, including the coverage of arthritis content in the entry-level physiotherapy training...

Increasing access to health services and the introduction of primary health care are the cornerstones of transforming healthcare initiatives in South Africa. Sustainability of healthcare provision in rural and under-resourced areas is secured by legislation of a year-long community service (CS) contract with graduating healthcare practitioners. This study explored how the first cohort of physiotherapists experienced their year-long CS and how they felt their undergraduate training prepared them for practice...

BACKGROUND: This manuscript presents a model that emerged from a qualitative study using grounded theory. Implementation and use of this model may assist all health care practitioners and organizations to advance the concepts of spirituality and spiritual care within their own sphere of practice...

There has been recent increasing interest in reflective practice within physiotherapy education as a method for reducing the 'theory-practice gap' and as a means of articulating, exposing and developing knowledge embedded in practice. Several contrasting theories have been developed to explain the role, place, purpose and definition of reflection in learning and teaching; however, much of the research to date has relied on theoretical debate rather than high quality empirical evidence. The aim of this paper was therefore, to report how a group of United Kingdom (UK) based physiotherapy Professional Practice Coordinators (n = 33) with their unique insight into the concept from both the academic and clinical perspective viewed and interpreted the use of reflective practice within their physiotherapy curriculum...

Acute stroke management is becoming a major challenge for the next decades because of the increasing life expectancy, and subsequent increase of burden of atherosclerotic disease, atrial fibrillation and intracranial small vessel disease. New advances in stroke management has been mainly based on the development of stroke unit facilities. Stroke centers allow a multi-disciplinairy approach of stroke care, involving stroke neurologists, neuroradiologists, cardiologists, specialized nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, psychologists, social workers, etc...
