Pain education in physical therapy training
Assessment of pain in marginalized populations: patient (expert) perspectives
Automated item generation using cognitive models
I currently teach the Musculoskeletal II (Assessment and Treatment of the spine) and Advanced Clinical Topics (including Chronic Pain) in the MScPT program. I also co-teach Foundations of Physical Therapy, offer a 1 credit chronic pain elective and work 2 half days in the Department of Physical Therapy student clinic.
I have a strong interest in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Projects have included Automated Item Generation and Test Assembly using Cognitive Models, Developing a Model of Work Readiness in Rehabilitation, and Evaluating the Reliability of Practical Examinations.
Introduction to the theory and application of physical therapy skills with an emphasis on assessment and handling techniques. Functional application of anatomy knowledge will be emphasized. Prerequisite: PTHER 516.
