Reimagining Rehabilitation: Targeting Non-Physical Factors

Talk synopsis: Rehabilitation interventions targeting non-physical patient characteristics have the potential for improve outcomes beyond physically focused intervention alone. Dr. Miller will present formative findings to support this claim and describe potential approaches to address non-physical factors.

Session moderated by Harvey Brockman and Richard Souza


Dr. Miller is an Assistant Professor in the UCSF Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science. He has more than 10 years of clinical experience as a Doctor of Physical Therapy, received his PhD in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Colorado, and completed an Aging Research Fellowship with the UCSF Division of Geriatrics. Dr. Miller’s research, funded by the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research, Department of Veterans Affairs, and National Institutes of Health, is focused on identifying and targeting behavioral factors within rehabilitation practice to improve the health and quality of life for people with disability. His work ranges from quantitative studies of physical activity among prosthesis users, to qualitative analyses of psychosocial factors in the setting of chronic disease, and mixed-methods investigations of telehealth physical therapy implementation during the COVID-19 pandemic. His research is currently funded through a UCSF CTSI KL2 career development award aimed at studying factors that influence rehabilitation service delivery for older adults with cognitive impairment.
