Dr. Maxi Miciak strives to positively influence the care patients receive and the use of research evidence in health services and policy decision-making. Her work has broad reach, extending from clinic to system. Drawing upon her experiences as a physiotherapist, Maxi's research interests probe the factors that influence provision of care from social perspectives. Her conceptual framework of the physiotherapy therapeutic relationship has received significant interest in scientific and clinical communities with 125 citations (over 5 articles), 12 invitations to speak at local, national and international conferences, webinars, and events, and 1 invited commentary. The framework is being used in research, with uptake reported in clinical education and practice. Maxi also works to advance the nascent area of research impact assessment. She has collaborated with local, national, and international health system stakeholders to co-develop and implement frameworks to assess research impact on informed decision-making and the scale of research and innovation in the healthcare system. Maxi is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Alberta. She received a doctorate in Rehabilitation Science (2015) from the University of Alberta and was the inaugural Cy Frank postdoctoral fellow in impact assessment at Alberta Innovates, Canada.
