Technology vs tradition: Physiotherapy video consultations for managing knee osteoarthritis

Technology vs tradition: Physiotherapy video consultations for managing knee osteoarthritis Webinar

As part of our celebration of 30 years of Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne, Professor Rana Hinman, physiotherapist and deputy director of the Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine at the University of Melbourne, will discuss the findings of the recently published Lancet article.

Rana is a research physiotherapist and National Health & Medical Research Council Investigator Fellow (Leadership Level 2) at the Centre for Health, Exercise & Sports Medicine at the University of Melbourne. Her research focuses on clinical trials of non-drug non-surgical treatment strategies for osteoarthritis, in particular exercise, rehabilitation and biomechanical interventions.

Her research aims to develop and evaluate strategies to support positive behaviour change in people with chronic musculoskeletal conditions, particularly adherence to exercise. Rana's research has a focus on implementation science, and she has a strong interest in developing and implementing methods to increase access to care, including telerehabilitation and digital health strategies. Rana has published over 350 peer-reviewed papers and is an Editorial Board member for Journal of Physiotherapy.

The PEAK non-inferiority RCT compared physiotherapy videoconferencing to in-person care for knee osteoarthritis.
