The FIREWELL team (Lead: Dr. Joy C. MacDermid, Western University) is looking to explore firefighters’ experiences on the causes and management of work-related shoulder injuries. The goal of the study is to explore firefighters’ perceptions on the causes and risk factors of shoulder injuries. Our findings will be used to develop effective firefighter-specific strategies to prevent or manage these shoulder injuries.
