Experience of the Pedagogic Part in Clinic Practice Among Physical Therapists with an OMT Diploma (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: During the last 30 years a rapid development has taken place within the field of physiotherapy. Within OMT several new treatment methods have been developed and in many of these the active participation of the patient is crucial. Due to the development of OMT, an OMT-physiotherapist today has a double task. The role previously consisted of mainly treating the patient, but has evolved to include also a pedagogical part. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to describe the experiences that physiotherapists with an OMT diploma have of the pedagogical part of the clinical work. Method: The study is qualitative and analysis has been done using a qualitative content analysis. Data was collected through interviews with semi structured questions. In the study 10 physiotherapists with an OMT diploma were interviewed.Results: The analysis resulted in four categories. "Knowledge provides security in the professional role", "the meeting - a condition to reach the patient and convey knowledge", "the pedagogical aim of the physiotherapist" and "using pedagogical methods". The pedagogic part of the clinical work includes the physiotherapist being familiar with their knowledge, using the meeting with the patient to reach the patient and to convey knowledge. The goal is to be able to explain the patient's problem and motivate them to increase their adherence to the treatment and exercises. Besides new knowledge, the OMT education also provides the physiotherapists with an increased security and happiness in their profession.? Conclusion: Physiotherapists feel that education is a large and important part of their clinical practice. Continued research about the pedagogical work of physiotherapists would be able to further develop the physiotherapist profession Key words: Patient education, Patient-centred approach, Qualitative method
