The Ontario Section of the Orthopaedic Division Presents:

Title: Moving physiotherapy beyond muscles and joints:
‘Learn from the past, practice in the present, and prepare for the future’

*This presentation will be followed by the Ontario Orthopaedic Division Annual General Meeting (AGM)*

Presentation Outline:

Dave Walton PT PhD and Jasdeep Dhir PT MClSc will discuss trends in physiotherapy practice in Canada over the past 20 years with a focus on the paradigmatic shifts in clinical reasoning that have permeated past and current approaches to managing the person in pain.  They will present recent evidence exploring the real skills that influence patient outcomes, including the patient and therapist interaction and how this impacts patient care and outcomes. The final part of the talk will consider the future of physiotherapy practice and examine how this practice is changing and what primary skills will be required of clinicians in the next 5-15 years, and what we should be doing now to prepare for that future.
