Course Information

Physiotherapists have a crucial role to play in educating patients with knee osteoarthritis. It is time to change the narrative about knee osteoarthritis and shift away from a “structural damage” model, towards a more “person-centered” approach. This session of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) Congress 2021 discusses knee osteoarthritis-related pain mechanisms, the importance of considering the patient experience, and clinically relevant strategies for patient education.

Anthony has presented his research and has presented on best practices for knee osteoarthritis at provincial, national, and international conferences. He assists with teaching at McGill University and provides a one-day course on knee osteoarthritis assessment and management across Canada.

Dr. Lisa Carlesso is an Assistant Professor in the School of Rehabilitation Science at McMaster University. A clinician for 25 years, her research aims to optimize outcomes for people with chronic musculoskeletal disorders by understanding the multi-dimensional nature of pain and how these complex relationships can enable a personalized approach to rehabilitation. Her current focus is on identifying pain phenotypes in people with knee osteoarthritis and how they may inform prognosis for total knee replacement and stratified conservative care for knee OA.

Dr. Crystal MacKay is a scientist at West Park Healthcare Centre and Assistant Professor (status) in the Department of Physical Therapy in the University of Toronto. She is a physical therapist and health services researcher with expertise in qualitative and quantitative research methods. In her research, Dr. MacKay has examined the burden and impact of musculoskeletal conditions, outcomes of models of service delivery, and patients’ and health care providers’ perspectives on and experiences with musculoskeletal conditions, including osteoarthritis.
