Patient-oriented research and knowledge translation in arthritis rehabilitation
Billions of dollars have been invested globally in health research, but the knowledge is unlikely to translate into health benefits if it is not being used in clinical practice or by individuals to inform their action. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss recent research that aims to modernize arthritis rehabilitation and improve the health of people with arthritis.
This presentation consists of two parts. First, Dr. Li will discuss recent research on digital tools for promoting physical activity in people with arthritis. Second, she will provide examples of involving patient partners in the development, evaluation, and knowledge translation of these tools. A new framework will be introduced to guide the process of meaningful patient engagement in the research process.
