The Rehabilitation Therapy Support Skills program is a pilot project funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education to evaluate the feasibility of a program to train health employees already working in rural and remote First Nations communities to allow them to support occupational therapists and physiotherapists.
The program is a partnership between Capilano University, the University of British Columbia and Carrier Sekani Family services. The certificate program is being run in Vanderhoof from June 2017 to May 2018.
Results of the pilot project will guide future programming to train support personnel for occupational therapy and physiotherapy for these remote First Nations communities to optimize rehabilitation service delivery.
