Celebrating Canada; A Collaboration between the Orthopaedic Division and France

Celebrating Canada - 150 Years… Physio Style! Orthopaedic Division Members: Important International Educational Event for Canada’s Orthopaedic Division and France

Knowledge transfer (KT) seeks to organize, create, and distribute knowledge and ensure its availability for future users. A very exciting KT educational event took place in Paris, France, on June 17-18, 2017, where 10 CPA Orthopaedic Division examiners examined 28 French candidates in the first ever International Intermediate Practical Exam. (IIPE)

History and Leadership:
Five years ago, the National Orthopaedic Division (NOD) formed a partnership with an educational group from France - KPTEN. Its founder is Pierre Trudelle, a visionary for his country and skilled knowledge facilitator who led this overseas group. As a knowledge facilitator (KF), he provided an active environment that embraced participants’ prior knowledge and unique learning styles and engaged those participants in taking charge of their learning. The Canadian Community System was an excellent fit for many reasons. We had highly skilled francophone instructors from Quebec ready to engage with them early in the process. Our fully translated curriculum and examinations facilitated the teaching in France and mentorship through organized sessions in Canada and frequent SKYPE sessions allowed for a multiplatform learning environment. This rich repertoire of activities to facilitate learning resulted in this first IIPE. Pierre’s KF leadership is helping to change physiotherapy practice in his country and we can be very proud of Canada’s involvement in this educational venture.

In true Canadian style we have shared and have fulfilled what we refer to as knowledge translation with another country. These KT activities have involved moving research and knowledge literally into the hands and minds of PT colleagues in France. They are putting this knowledge and skill to practical use and making a difference in patient’s lives now and into the future.

OH CANADA... We are again proving to the world that the sharing of ideas and resources not only makes our neighbours better, but also elevates our standing in the world.

Fêtons le Canada - 150 ans... À la façon physio! Membres de la Division d’orthopédie: Événement international majeur de la Division d’orthopédie du Canada en thérapie manuelle et de la France

Le transfert des connaissances en physiothérapie a pour but d’organiser, de créer et de partager ses connaissances tout en veillant à ce qu’elles se transmettent aux futurs physiothérapeutes. Un événement majeur s’est tenu à Paris en France les 17 et 18 juin 2017 et le partage des connaissances s’est avéré un énorme succès. Dix (10) examinateurs de la Division d’orthopédie de l’ACP ont soumis les candidats français au tout premier examen pratique intermédiaire international (EPII).

Historique et leadership:
Il y a cinq ans, la Division nationale d’orthopédie (DNO) a créé un partenariat avec un groupe d’éducation de la France - KPTEN. Son fondateur et dirigeant est M. Pierre Trudelle, un visionnaire dans son pays et un animateur qualifié hors pair. Ce facilitateur du savoir expérimenté a créé un environnement dynamique en tenant compte des connaissances préalables des participants et de leurs styles d’apprentissages pour les amener à prendre en main leur propre apprentissage. Le programme de formation canadien en thérapie manuelle fut un excellent vecteur pour plusieurs raisons. Nous avions au Québec un groupe d’enseignants francophones hautement qualifiés prêts à collaborer avec ce groupe d’outre-mer dès le début du processus. La traduction entière de notre curriculum et des examens a facilité l’enseignement en France et le mentorat lors de séances organisées au Canada et lors de fréquentes séances par SKYPE permettant un mode d’apprentissage multiplateforme. Ce riche répertoire d’activités a facilité l’apprentissage et a mené à ce premier EPII. Le leadership de Pierre a contribué à changer la pratique de la physiothérapie en France et nous pouvons être très fiers du rôle du Canada dans ce projet de formation.

Comme de vrais Canadiens, nous avons partagé et accompli ce que l’on peut appeler du transfert de connaissances avec un autre pays. Ces activités de transfert du savoir et de la recherche impliquaient littéralement les mains et l’esprit « hands and minds » de nos collègues physiothérapeutes en France. Ils utilisent ces connaissances, compétences et habiletés dans leur pratique et font une différence dans la vie de leurs patients actuellement et dans le futur.

OH CANADA... Nous démontrons encore au monde que le partage des idées et des ressources ne rend pas seulement nos voisins meilleurs, mais rehausse notre statut dans le monde.
