Research

Research Summary/Interests

The broad objectives of Dr. McGee’s clinical research are to improve the upper limb health and activity level of persons with acquired and congenital upper limb disorders, to inform rehabilitation therapists and surgeons on best practice assessment and interventions for persons of these populations, and to establish the psychometric properties and reference values for assessments used to measure upper limb disability and health. In addition, as an educator of entry-level and post-professional occupational therapy learners, Dr. McGee’s scholarship of teaching and learning objectives are to test the impact of didactic training on learner self-efficacy.

Dr. McGee’s most recent research has focused on quantifying the hand force requirements for engaging in a commonly problematic daily activity for persons with hand osteoarthritis, opening sealed containers; testing the validity of the force reducing benefits of joint protection training for persons with hand osteoarthritis; testing the psychometrics of hand-held myometry for the intrinsic hand muscles; gathering normative data on intrinsic hand Myometry; and testing the mechanics of hand muscles targeted in exercise for thumb osteoarthritis via fluoroscopy. Dr. McGee is also actively testing the impact of educational training, particularly acute care simulation, on entry-level occupational therapy student self-efficacy.
