Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Physiotherapy is a health profession that assesses and treats people of various conditions across their lifespan. Physiotherapists often integrate evidence-based interventions, such as therapeutic exercises and education, to promote self-management interventions across a multitude of diseases. Despite the plenary of available evidence supporting the effectiveness of these interventions, especially in the use of therapeutic exercises, encouraging people to adhere to such interventions can be extremely challenging. The aim of this Special Issue is to gather findings from novel interventions to inspire all health professionals to implement new strategies to improve patient’s adherence to physiotherapy interventions, especially exercise regimens.  We are pleased to invite authors to submit original investigations, methods papers, or review papers.

 Potential topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Technology-based approaches to improve adherence to exercises and physiotherapy interventions;
  • Novel methodology approaches in patient education to improve adherence to exercise and physiotherapy interventions;
  • Community-based participatory research approaches to develop interventions that will promote adherence to exercises and physiotherapy interventions.
