Purpose: This study's purpose was to gain insight into physiotherapists' perspectives on the perceived barriers and facilitators of integrating physiotherapists into primary health care (PHC) teams. Method: A qualitative descriptive approach consisting of semi-structured face-to-face or telephone interviews was used. Interviews were audio recorded, transcribed verbatim, and checked by the interviewers to ensure trustworthiness. Data were analyzed using Braun and Clarke's six steps to thematic analysis. Results: Eight participants were interviewed, representing physiotherapists from diverse demographics and geographical regions in Ontario...

Purpose: A systematic review and meta-analysis were performed to identify clinical tests for diagnosing cervical zygapophyseal joint pain (CZP) and to determine their diagnostic accuracy. Method: A search strategy was carried out to find relevant evidence published in CINAHL, Embase, MEDLINE, and PEDro from 1980 to January 1, 2015, pertaining to the clinical diagnosis of CZP. Quality assessment was completed using the Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies-2. Results were analyzed to pool sensitivity and specificity and clarify diagnostic value...

Purpose: We explored patients' perspectives on home exercise programmes (HEPs) and their experiences using a mobile application designed to facilitate home exercise. Method: Data were generated using qualitative, semi-structured, face-to-face interviews with 10 participants who were receiving outpatient physiotherapy. Results: Establishing a therapeutic partnership between physiotherapists and patients enabled therapists to customize the HEPs to the patients' lifestyles and preferences. Analysis suggests that using the mobile application improved participants' ability to integrate the HEP into their daily life and was overwhelmingly preferred to traditional paper handouts...

Purpose: This study's aim was to characterize the nature of students' research conducted for a Master of Science in Physical Therapy (MScPT) degree programme at a Canadian university and evaluate the lead advisors' perspectives of its impact on their research capacity, education, clinical practice, knowledge translation, and health policy. Methods: We conducted a quantitative, cross-sectional, retrospective review of research reports from 2003 to 2014 to characterize the MScPT students' research and a quantitative, cross-sectional e-survey of lead research advisors to evaluate the impact of this research...

Joan Leung, Katarina Stroud
Purpose: Serial casting for ankle contractures is traditionally performed in prone, a position that patients may not easily tolerate. Also, although serial casting is effective in correcting contracture, its effect dissipates quickly. This case report describes a procedure for performing casting for ankle contractures in a supine or sitting position. It also describes a process that enables the effect of serial casting to be maintained long term. Client Description: The client was an adult who had suffered traumatic brain injury and severe bilateral ankle contractures...

Judy King, Sarah Tessier, Marie-Josée Charette, Danica Gaudet
Purpose: Physiotherapists have been acknowledged as playing a vital role in the care of people living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and this care includes providing patient education (PE). Yet very little is known about the issues critical to providing this PE. The purpose of this scoping review was to identify and map out the current knowledge about the content, processes, and overall effectiveness of the PE provided by physiotherapists for people living with COPD. Method: Using the guidelines developed by Arksey and O'Malley in 2005 and by Levac in 2010, key databases were searched...

Denise Johnson, Jocelyn E Harris, Paul Stratford, Julie Richardson
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to estimate the interrater reliability of three shortened versions of the Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory (CAHAI-7, CAHAI-8, CAHAI-9) when used with persons with acquired brain injury (ABI). The CAHAI is an assessment of upper limb function with high reliability in the stroke and ABI populations. In the stroke population, three shortened versions of the measure have established reliability. Clinicians report time constraints as a barrier to using standardized assessments; thus, establishing the reliability of the shortened versions of the CAHAI in the ABI population may increase the use of this measure...

Purpose: This study creates a baseline clinical portrait of sensorimotor rehabilitation in three stroke rehabilitation units (SRUs) as a first step in implementing a multi-centre clinical research platform. Method: Participants in this cross-sectional, descriptive study were the patients and rehabilitation teams in these SRUs. Prospective (recording of therapy time and content and a Web-based questionnaire) and retrospective (chart audit) methods were combined to characterize the practice of the rehabilitation professionals...

Purpose: The authors investigated the interrater reliability, the standard deviation of the random measurement error, and the limits of agreement (LoA) of the Observable Movement Quality (OMQ) scale in children. Movement quality is important in the recognition of motor problems, and the OMQ scale, a questionnaire used by paediatric physical therapists, has been developed for use with an age-specific motor test to observe movement quality and score relative to what is expected for a child's age. Method: Paediatric physical therapists ( n =28; 2 men, 26 women) observed video-recorded assessments of age-related motor tests in children ( n =9) aged 6 months to 6 years and filled in the OMQ scale (possible score range 15-75 points)...

Purpose: This article describes the knowledge, attitudes, and practice of in-patient physiotherapists in Ontario regarding the treatment of patients who are super-morbidly obese (SMO; i.e., those whose BMI is >50). Method: A 62-item questionnaire was developed to assess demographics, sources of knowledge, current practice, and attitudes such as confidence, willingness, and the perceived effectiveness of treatment. It was distributed electronically using FluidSurveys. All physiotherapists working in a clinical role with adults in an in-patient setting in Ontario were eligible to participate...

Purpose: We determined the correlation between the Fitbit One and Actical accelerometer for quantifying the 3-day step count and activity levels in community-dwelling individuals with stroke. Method: Twelve participants with a mean age of 62.6 (SD 9.3) years wore both the Fitbit One and the Actical on the non-paretic ankle for 3 days. Regression analyses were performed to examine concurrent validity between the devices for step counts and sedentary, light, moderate, and vigorous activity. The relative error of the Fitbit One compared with the Actical in measuring step count was calculated...
