Diversity In Motion - Designing and Scaling Rehab for Different Patient Populations
While current evidence reaffirms the importance of active care and rehabilitation for musculoskeletal injuries, applying these concepts to the vastly diverse public has its challenges. These challenges are identified as well in the research, and surface as low adherence rates to home exercise and rehabilitation protocols. Is there a way to approach different patient populations, different intersectional identities, in a way that improves adherence and outcomes? In this presentation we learn to blend cultural competency, communication, coaching, and adaptable programming into a method of bringing appropriate active care to a larger and larger population of patients. Including patients with different physical, age related, cultural, and even motivational differences. Our treatments do not exist in a vacuum! If chiropractic is to be embraced by the mainstream public, being able to deliver high value care to a vast and variable population is essential.
1. The importance of Rehabilitation for all MSK patient populations, including review of evidence.
2. Identify challenges or barriers to successful active care outcomes. Including cultural, biopsychosocial, or physical barriers.
3. Strategies for adapting rehabilitation to each of these challenges or barriers. Strategies for more efficient communication to overcome these strategies or barriers.
Dr. Bobby Maybee initially began the Forward-Thinking Chiropractic Alliance (FTCA) in 2014 as an attempt to change the landscape and conversation of the chiropractic profession on social media. Since then, the FTCA has gone on to create evidence-based content in a grassroots nature. FTCA’s evidence-based content is typically presented in an online educational format through continuing education courses. Dr. Maybee hosts “Forward, The Podcast of the Forward-Thinking Chiropractic Alliance.” A 2004 graduate of Western States Chiropractic College, he is a member of the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners Peer Review Committee and a member and supporter of the American Chiropractic Association.
