2014 GOLDEN HANDS AWARD
Richard Bourassa

The 2014 Golden Hands Award recipient is Richard Bourassa. Congratulations Richard!


"Every year, the Golden Hands Award of the National Orthopaedic Division is given in honor of the late David Lamb, a world-renowned manual therapist, who served as one of the builders of the Canadian Academy of Manual and Manipulative Physical Therapy. He served as a member of the Standards Committee for IFOMPT in the 70's and was its Chair to 1990. He lectured extensively and conducted courses on all levels of manual therapy across the globe. The Golden Hands Award is given to an exceptional orthopaedic physiotherapist that exemplifies the commitment to our profession in manual therapy, education, mentorship and research. It gives me great pleasure and honor to represent the Canadian orthopaedic body and announce this year's recipient - a mentor to many of you, including myself, a colleague, a friend, Mr. Richard Bourassa."

CERVICAL MANIPULATION INFORMATION SHEET (CMIS)

The Orthopaedic division is pleased to provide access for its members to the Cervical Manipulation Information Sheet (CMIS). The document is now available on the Documents for Download page of the members only section of the OD website and can be downloaded in a pdf format.
The CMIS is an evidence based tool created for clinicians. In order for informed consent to be valid when administering a cervical manipulation, certain information must be communicated. The CMIS is designed to help guide one through all of the pertinent information. In addition, the CMIS contains literature references for clinical predictors for those likely to respond to cervical manipulation or those likely to have an adverse event. As well, treatment outcomes regarding both effectiveness of cervical manipulation and adverse events are provided. This additional information will serve to help the clinician in the critical reasoning process when deciding whether a cervical manipulation is an appropriate technique for each patient. The references in the CMIS are current as of October 2008. It will be updated on a yearly basis or as new information is published.
