Pasqualina Santaguida is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact (HEI) and a Clinical Associate in the School of Rehabilitation Sciences at McMaster University. Pasqualina’s research interests center on musculoskeletal disorders and most recently on factors contributing to disability and wearable sensors for improving exercise training in people with osteoarthritis. Her research also focuses on knowledge translation, both implementation and evidence syntheses, to identify effective strategies for older adults and health care providers when implementing evidence-based interventions. In addition, Pasqualina is working with the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) under the Seniors Health Division (SHD), to build strategies that equip the membership in evidence-based competencies for the care of older adults in homecare, long-term care and private practice settings.
