Good Practice: Consent in Practice
As Practice Advisor I often receive questions from members related to consent. With the release of Physiotherapy Alberta’s new Consent Resource Guide for Alberta Physiotherapists, I felt it would be an appropriate time to discuss some of the most commonly asked questions.

Research in Focus: Pelvic Floor Muscle Training for Urinary Incontinence in Men Following Prostatectomy
Conservative management of urinary incontinence may include pelvic floor muscle training, biofeedback, and electrical stimulation. The effectiveness of conservative management of urinary incontinence among females has been well established in research; however, the effectiveness of these treatments among males following prostatectomy is not as well established.

Introducing the Mentorship Guidebook
Career planning is something that’s been on our minds here at Physiotherapy Alberta for the last couple of years. As we began to understand more about mentorship and how it relates to one’s career, we took a step back to put a career planning foundation in place. With those resources in place, we are now ready to turn our focus to mentorship.
