Title: The Complex Roles of Acculturation and Religious Coping in Shaping Recovery Experiences after Cardiac Events among Arab Individuals in Ottawa
Hussein Baharoon is currently a Ph.D. candidate in rehabilitation sciences at the University of Ottawa. His thesis project focuses on religious coping and acculturation in managing stress and lifestyle change behaviours after cardiac events among Arab individuals. He had begun accomplishing global health issues in physiotherapy when he worked with Handicap International Belgium in Yemen between 2002 and 2005 to install a rehabilitation center and workshop of orthopedic devices. Afterward, he worked for two years in different projects funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to support Yemen’s healthcare sector. A few years later, he completed his professional master’s in rehabilitation practices in 2012 at Université de Sherbrooke. His master dissertation focused on cultural barriers when practicing physiotherapy with Muslim individuals in Quebec.
In general, he is interested in evaluating the impact of cultural diversity on rehabilitation programs, rehabilitation for ageing people from ethnic minorities, rehabilitation and disability in developing countries, and religiosity, spirituality, and rehabilitation outcomes. As well, Hussein is interested in developing local and international communities. He established the Rehabilitation Sciences Students’ Association, and he was its first president and the Ph.D. students’ representative for the Rehabilitation program for two years. In the same context, he has other activities in the local community in Ottawa.
