Challenging Stereotypes: Drs. Sheri Price and Katherine Harman create awareness with new, research‑based video on physiotherapy
What do physiotherapists do? According to research by Drs. Sheri Price (Nursing) and Katherine Harman (Physiotherapy), many think they focus solely on sports injuries — but physiotherapists do much more, like conduct leading edge research and collaborate across many health disciplines to improve outcomes for their patients.
A new video based on their research aims to challenge stereotypes about physiotherapy. Drs. Price and Harman co-led the creation of the video, which was based on their CIHR funded study on the career choice and professional socialization of students from five health professions (dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy and physiotherapy) at Dalhousie. The study showed that stereotypical perceptions of the health professions can impact career satisfaction and inter professional education and collaboration.
View the video, “Physiotherapy: Endless Possibilities," which offers a glimpse into the true creative and collaborative opportunities available to those who choose to become physiotherapists.
