Project Description

MarySue Ingman, Associate Professor, DPT Program was recently awarded a $781.98 Faculty Research and Scholarly Activities grant to explore whether the out-patient physical therapy (PT) population believes that physical therapists should advise them on four personal health behaviors including smoking cessation, physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight, and healthy eating. A secondary analysis will be conducted to determine if attitudes differ between age groups, genders, PT diagnoses, education level, method of referral to PT, length of PT episode of care, and patients' current personal health behaviors.
