Survey Invitation

Participation of Canadian physical medicine & rehabilitation specialists in undergraduate medical teaching

Thank you for taking the time to participate in our survey, looking at the pattern of participation of physiatrists and physiatry residents in teaching in the medical school environment. There currently is no consensus documentation of the degree of formal involvement of the specialty of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation in the Canadian medical school context. Significant variability exists across the country regarding the degree of formal involvement of this specialty in the medical school curriculum. The purpose of this study is to capture the current state of teaching by physiatrists and physiatry residents in the medical school setting.

This is an anonymous online survey. You will be asked to document if you are teaching in the medical school setting, and your motivations and barriers for teaching at this level. The survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Please see the attached “Invitation Letter and Consent Form” for further details.

FOCUS GROUP

HEALTH PROFESSIONALS NEEDED FOR RESEARCH ON CURRENT PRACTICES FOR MONITORING COUGH EFFECTIVENESS and USE of AIRWAY CLEARANCE STRATEGIES

Friday, May 26, 2017, 1:30 - 3:00 pm
Upper Fallsview B, 5th floor of the Sheraton Conference Center, Sheraton on the Falls Hotel

We are looking for healthcare professionals working in a clinic or centre providing care to individuals with neuromuscular disease and/or spinal cord injuries to take part in a study titled:

Translating Recommendations for Airway Clearance from the Canadian Thoracic Society Home Mechanical Ventilation Guidelines

We want to understand current practices related to monitoring cough effectiveness and use of airway clearance strategies for individuals with neuromuscular disease and spinal cord injuries as well as existing barriers to implementation of Canadian Thoracic Society Home Mechanical Ventilation guideline recommendations and potential strategies to mitigate these barriers.

In this study you would participate in a focus group lasting about 60 to 90 minutes.

The information gained from this study may help individuals with neuromuscular disease and spinal cord injuries requiring assistance with airway clearance as well as healthcare professionals involved in their care in the future.

RehabINK

RehabINK is a digital publication project that was both founded and created by a group of rehabilitation science students at the University of Toronto. Their hope was that through this publication, they would be able to bring together our community and allow students, faculty, and researchers alike to showcase their work. Their vision is to create a sustainable student-run publication which will allow students to gain experience with the journal production and writing process. Most importantly they hope that this publication will help to spark discussion around the many thought-provoking topics we deal with every day. For that reason you will notice rehabINK is intended to be more like a “think tank” rather than a scientific journal.
