Development of a tool to assess core cardiorespiratory physiotherapy skills: a Delphi study. (2020)
Journal Article
ROBERTS, F. and COOPER, K. [2020]. Development of a tool to assess core cardiorespiratory physiotherapy skills: a Delphi study. Physiotherapy theory and practice [online], Latest Articles. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1080/09593985.2020.1827467

Purpose: This study reports on the development of an outcome measure designed to evaluate pre-registration physiotherapy students’ ability in performing core cardiorespiratory skills. Method: A four round, e-Delphi study using an international panel... Read More about Development of a tool to assess core cardiorespiratory physiotherapy skills: a Delphi study..

Impact of simulated patients on physiotherapy students' skill performance in cardiorespiratory practice classes: a pilot study. (2020)
Journal Article
WALKER, C.A. and ROBERTS, F.E. 2020. Impact of simulated patients on physiotherapy students' skill performance in cardiorespiratory practice classes: a pilot study. Physiotherapy Canada [online], 72(3), pages 314-322. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3138/ptc-2019-0113

Purpose: To date, no evidence exists that high-fidelity simulation improves skill development among physiotherapy students in the university setting. With pressures to reduce costs and maintain or improve the quality of the learning experience, and w...

Effectiveness of expiratory muscle strength training on expiratory strength, pulmonary function and cough in the adult population: a systematic review. (2019)
Journal Article
TEMPLEMAN, L. and ROBERTS, F. 2020. Effectiveness of expiratory muscle strength training on expiratory strength, pulmonary function and cough in the adult population: a systematic review. Physiotherapy [online], 106, pages 43-51. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.physio.2019.06.002

Background: Respiratory muscle strength declines in certain disease states, leading to impaired cough, reduced airway clearance and an increased risk of aspiration pneumonia. Respiratory muscle training may therefore reduce this risk. Objectives: To...

Effectiveness of high fidelity simulation versus low fidelity simulation on practical/clinical skill development in pre-registration physiotherapy students: a systematic review. (2019)
Journal Article
ROBERTS, F. and COOPER, K. 2019. Effectiveness of high fidelity simulation versus low fidelity simulation on practical/clinical skill development in pre-registration physiotherapy students: a systematic review. JBI database of systematic reviews and implementation reports [online], 17(6), pages 1229-1255. Available from: https://doi.org/10.11124/JBISRIR-2017-003931

Objective: The objective of this review is to evaluate the effectiveness of high fidelity simulation (HFS) versus low fidelity simulation (LFS) on practical/clinical skill development in pre-registration physiotherapy students. Introduction: Evidence...

Scottish healthcare students' perceptions of an interprofessional ward simulation: an exploratory descriptive study. (2017)
Journal Article
ROBERTS, F. and GOODHAND, K. 2017. Scottish healthcare students' perceptions of an interprofessional ward simulation: an exploratory descriptive study. Nursing and health sciences [online], 20(1), pages 107-115. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1111/nhs.12393

The most memorable learning occurs during placement. Simulated inter-professional learning is a logical learning opportunity to help healthcare professionals work beyond their professional silos. In this qualitative study, we investigated the perceiv... Read More about Scottish healthcare students' perceptions of an interprofessional ward simulation: an exploratory descriptive study..
