Bad Science Watch with Ryan Armstrong

Bad Science Watch with Ryan Armstrong

January 24, 2021

Ryan Armstrong is the executive director of Bad Science Watch - a non-profit dedicated to creating a safer, healthier, and more prosperous Canada through the establishment of the widespread use of critical thinking and sound science when making important societal decisions. He first became interested in science activism after encountering unscrupulous claims by regulated health professionals who offered implausible therapies to vulnerable patients. Initially interested in science education and communication as a PhD student, he shifted his focus to science justice after witnessing the harm of pseudoscience as a tool to de-educate the public for profit.

 

There are some important subjects we discuss throughout this episode including the limitations of self-regulation of health professions, ways to work towards a more evidence-based, no BS approach when it comes to informing and protecting the public about healthcare services, the role of education in improving the professional environment, the process of informed consent, and many other important topics. We at ARME, as many of you have seen, stand by a no BS approach to healthcare and education, and we really do appreciate the work that Ryan Armstrong and others do to push towards change in public health legislation.

This time Lora joins us to discuss the recent release of the new Canadian 24h movement guidelines.

Some of the topics we touch on in this episode include accessibility to guidelines, public outreach and knowledge translation, the inclusion of balance training for those aged 65 years and over, the utility and limitations of group fitness classes, and most importantly, being able to make physical activity relatable to anyone we happen to be working with.

How to save the world with Ben Cormack

How to save the world with Ben Cormack

November 25, 2020

In today’s episode we are joined by Ben Cormack, a physiotherapist, educator, founder of CorKinetic and The Better Clinician Project, who has presented at a number of high profile events such as the San Diego Pain Summit. Ben shares tons of high quality content and thoughts on social media, and has a number of great continuing education courses (see below).

 

We got to discuss a wide array of topics throughout the chat. In the early parts of the discussion, we covered the importance of research appraisal and interpretation from a clinician’s point of view, the trichotomization of the evidence-based pillars and the biopsychosocial model, and Ben’s development as a clinician. The conversation shifts towards the use of more flexible rehabilitation, the importance of a therapeutic alliance, we’re treated an education analogy for the ages, and we even see Ben taking over as the host of the podcast. We finish off the episode by putting Ben on the spot with a fun, yet unfair, rapid fire session.
