However, it was not hatched in isolation and was influenced by political, social, cultural, technological and scientific trends from the home country, immediate neighbours, Europe and the wider world. The timelines available here try and put the developments that occurred in the acquisition, running and dissolution of Empire into a wider context. Of course influence worked in both directions and developments in the Empire could and did have a significant impact on the rest of the world.
What can Physiotherapists do to help address the Opioid Crisis? The opioid crisis is a North American problem, with an overdose death rate of almost 9 people per- 3 times that of Australia and 9 times that of Europe.
Nearly half of all opioid overdose deaths involved prescription opioids. This session will focus on the what physiotherapists can do to reduce the first prescription to opioids for Canadians. Attendees will gain an: This minute session will provide an overview of the magnitude of the opioid crisis in Canada — how we got to where we are today and the role that physiotherapists can play in addressing this crisis.
The format will be that of a panel discussion. The chair will introduce the panelists and provide a brief overview of the session. Each panelist will present for 10 minutes after which there will be a question and answer period.
At the same time that provincial governments delisted physiotherapy services that offer non-pharmaceutical management of pain, there was a concomitant rise in physician prescriptions for opioids as a first line strategy to manage pain.
With evidence that opioid prescriptions for pain is not only ineffective but can result in addiction and death, physiotherapists must collaborate interprofessionally to reverse this strategy by offering non-pharmacologic strategies as a first line management of pain in the primary care sector.
The rate of opioid prescribing increased steadily between Prescriptions of opioids increased dramatically as there was no unsafe ceiling on the frequency or dose prescribed to ameliorate pain.
While the benefits of opioids for pain relief remain uncertain, the risks of addiction and overdose are clear. Thus, it is not difficult for nonsurgical, nonpharmacological interventions to out-perform opioids.
Despite this evidence, many non-cancer opioid prescriptions continue to be initiated for musculoskeletal MSK pain associated with injury, surgery, or degenerative diseases In contrast, there are many rehabilitation interventions for which there is evidence of effective pain reduction i.
Moreover, rehabilitation interventions are not addictive. This will give patients and prescribers the opportunity to make safe choices for managing patients with pain in Canada.

Opioids for back pain patients:Nov 25, · The strength of Quebec's sovereignty movement has wavered significantly over the province's history. This presentation outlines the factors behind the .

Quebec has played a special role in French history; the modern province occupies much of the land where French settlers founded the colony of Canada (New France) in the 17th and 18th centuries.
The population is predominantly French-speaking and Roman Catholic, with a large Anglophone minority, augmented in recent years by immigrants from Asia. In studies on the particularities of Québec French and the French spoken in the Québec diaspora, linguists distinguish the following five categories: 1) traits typical of the French spoken in the 16 th and 17 th centuries, 2) usages from regional dialects of France, 3) innovations, 4) borrowings from Aboriginal languages, and 5) anglicisms.
"Long live free Quebec!
Long live French Canada! And long live France!" declaimed de Gaulle (en français dans le texte, of course).
Quebec was repositioned as a besieged Gaulish village, and French as a symbol of resistance – perhaps even as a surrogate magic potion. The s and s were decades of strength for French-Canadian Americans—organizations had been established, French-language newspapers were thriving, and there were successful battles against attempts to abolish teaching in French.
Maintaining French identity became more of a challenge after World War II. We will be visiting Quebec.
