Navigating the grey zone of physiotherapy assistant autonomy in homecare: perspectives of physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants
What's the challenge?
What did we do?
What have we found?
We explored the perspectives of physiotherapists (PTs) and PTAs providing homecare services in Ontario regarding their experiences since the 2013 introduction of PTAs into homecare rehabilitation teams. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 10 PTs and 5 PTAs working in homecare. These were transcribed and analyzed using the DEPICT model.
