Symposium: Digital physiotherapy care for chronic conditions – scope, user experience, engagement and preferences

Aktivitet: Foredrag og mundtlige bidragKonferenceoplæg


Digital delivery of physiotherapy care, including online exercise treatment, is a growing part of public health services, especially relevant in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent evidence also suggests that digital physiotherapy for people with physical disabilities may have an important role in future care programs.

Digital physiotherapy care also entails a rethinking and re-organization of some physiotherapy services, affecting the role of the physiotherapist and on the patient's expectations and experience of physiotherapy care.

The transition from traditional physiotherapy care to digital physiotherapy care comes with many new considerations, such as the contact between physiotherapist and patient, patient engagement as well as the experience of supervision during exercise – these factors are currently poorly understood.

There is need for a better understanding of the context for digital physiotherapy and the user experience, engagement and preferences, covering both patient and physiotherapist in order to facilitate a successful implementation of this additional scope of physiotherapy care.

This proposal for a focused symposium seeks to provide insight in current evidence for telehealth, with a particular focus on the user experience by both physiotherapist and patient, as well as exploring patient’s engagement and dose-response to digital interventions and effects of using digital health solutions in promoting physical activity. The presentations are based on recent and current quantitative and qualitative investigations of the effects and experiences and needs for digital physiotherapy care in chronic conditions.
