Scientific Questions Being Studied

Physical therapists commonly provide rehabilitation services to patient populations who have complex and co-occuring chronic diseases that influence rehabilitation outcomes. The prevalence of these chronic and comorbid health conditions (eg, Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, Cardiovascular Disease) within physical therapist practice is understudied. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine the prevalence of chronic diseases within physical therapist practice using data from the All of Us research program.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (Chronic Disease Comorbidity and Disability)
  • Population Health

Scientific Approaches

I will use participant survey responses, electronic health record data, and digital health technology (eg, Fitbit) data from the All of Us registered tier to construct variables, and calculate descriptive statistics (eg, number, prevalence, median, mean, standard deviation, IQR) to demonstrate the significance of these health conditions in rehabilitation service delivery.

Anticipated Findings

Anticipated findings will suggest that complex and co-occurring chronic disease is common within rehabilitation practice. This information is needed to inform healthcare delivery improvement for this population.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
