This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: 1.To evaluate the effects of physical activity programs on function (e.g., activities of daily [ADLs], physical function), cognition, mood, behaviour, and mortality in older persons with dementia. 2.To...
Background. There is some evidence that physical activity delays the onset of dementia in healthy older adults and slows down cognitive decline to prevent the onset of cognitive disability. Studies using animal models suggest that physical activity has the potential to attenuate the...
Accelerating client-driven care: Pilot study for a social interaction approach to knowledge translation.Download
This study piloted a knowledge translation (KT) intervention promoting evidence-based home care through social interaction.A total of 33 providers organized into 5 heterogeneous, geographically defined action groups participated in 5 researcher-facilitated meetings based on the participatory...

This study investigated the effect of a two week intensive narrative intervention program on the narrative abilities of four inner-city children, using an interrupted time-series with removed treatment design. The intervention program focused on teaching five specific story grammar units. The...
An examination of parent-child dyadic interaction and the impact of a parent-training program designed to support the language development of toddlers diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)Download
Parents can effectively facilitate positive child behaviour change (Kaiser & Hancock, 2003). Their inclusion as interventionists is an essential component of autism intervention (NRC, 2001) and represents a natural step toward consistent early intervention. However, what constitutes effective...
The rules of governance are changing. They are necessarily becoming more stringent as interventions offered to treat conditions carry unpredictable side effects, often associated with novel therapeutic vectors. The clinical relevance of this relates to the obligations of those involved in...
Current Issues and Regulations in Tendon Regeneration and Musculoskeletal Repair with Mesenchymal Stem CellsDownload
Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stromal cells residing within the connective tissue of most organs. Their surface phenotype has been well described. Most commonly, mesenchymal stem cells demonstrate the ability to differentiate into mesenchymal tissues (bone, catailge, fat, etc...),...
