I graduated from McGill University with a Professional Master’s in Physical Therapy in October 2016. I now work at a private clinic in Montreal and recently developed InfoPhysiotherapy.com, a free information resource for both patients and health professionals. All the content on this website is written by myself. Physiotherapy is an evidence-based profession, and knowledge translation is a crucial part of the advancement of the physiotherapy profession. It is something I have always been keen on.
Google allows patients to have access to all the information they could possibly want. However, it may not always be the “right” information. I wanted to provide them with legitimate and valid information that can be backed up by the scientific literature.
The mission of InfoPhysiotherapy.com is to promote evidence-based practice among health care professionals, and to inform the general population regarding injury prevention and management, exercise prescription and healthy living. As well, physiotherapists and patients can discuss any evidence I have presented, or even suggest a topic they would like to know more about. The website also features an online library with the latest publications from the scientific literature.
Infophysiotherapy.com has greatly evolved since it was launched last December. It now features 25 articles covering a large variety of topics and content is added weekly. In March alone, the website has already received more than 6500 views!
My next step would be to begin collaborating with other physiotherapists, particularly those who specialize in different fields such as pelvic floor or paediatrics, among others. InfoPhysiotherapy.com is continuously in expansion. I look forward to what the future has to offer and please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you are interested in helping me make a difference!
