Le Programme de Plateforme technologique
L'objectif de ce programme est de développer des projets qui visent à utiliser le site Web du REPAR comme une plateforme de transfert des connaissances. Nos objectifs spécifiques sont de rendre disponible aux chercheurs, cliniciens et étudiants des outils de mise à jour des connaissances dans un contexte de la pratique fondée sur les données probantes. Le Bulletin Réadap_veille est un exemple ainsi que les moteurs spécialisés tels le StrokEngine et le InfoBrûlure.
La plateforme contient un choix d'outils d'évaluation clinique, de guides de pratique clinique ou de prise en charge de clientèles ainsi que des modules éducationnels. Cette section offrira également des liens vers des sites Web pertinents pour la pratique fondée sur les données probantes.

CanStroke Recovery Trials researchers were recently awarded $100K in funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to conduct a one-year pilot study of their virtual rehabilitation program for walking and balance, called TRAIL. TRAIL – TeleRehab with Aims to Improve Lower extremity recovery after stroke – was developed by McMaster professor Ada Tang and UBC-Okanagan professor Brodie Sakakibara.

Having a stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA), sometimes called a “mini-stroke,” increases the risk for a stroke in the future. Identifying the cause of the stroke or TIA can lead to specific prevention strategies to reduce the risk of additional strokes, according to an updated guideline from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

A recent qualitative study of rehabilitation professionals caring for people with spatial neglect enabled researchers to identify interventions to improve rehabilitation outcomes. Experts reported that implementation of spatial neglect care depends on interventions involving family support and training, promotion of interdisciplinary collaboration, development of interprofessional vocabulary, and continuous treatment and follow-up assessment through care transitions. The article, <a href="https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2590109521000264">“Barriers and Facilitators to Rehabilitation Care of Individuals with Spatial Neglect: A Qualitative Study of Professional Views”</a>was published online in <i>Archives of Rehabilitation Research and Clinical Translation</i> on March 31, 2021.

Older patients hospitalized with acute heart failure who participated in a novel 12-week cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) program tailored to address their specific physical impairments had significant gains in physical functioning, quality of life and depression compared with those receiving usual care, regardless of their heart’s squeezing ability (ejection fraction), according to a new study presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 70th Annual Scientific Session.

Adults with cerebral palsy are more likely to experience the debilitating pains of musculoskeletal disorders, but they receive significantly less physical therapy for those ailments, according to a recent study. The findings, published in Disability & Health, analyzed four years of Medicare service claims from community-living older adults with and without cerebral palsy who had one or more ambulatory claims for a musculoskeletal diagnosis. Fewer than one-third of general population patients utilized physical therapy. Those with cerebral palsy, despite having greater risk of secondary comorbid conditions, received even less physical therapy.
