CAPMR Specialized Rehabilitation – Why It Matters

Join the GTA Rehab Network for an informational webinar to learn about newly released guidance on specialized rehabilitation.

The GTA Rehab Network has been advising Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) on how rehabilitation contributes to care and positive patient outcomes. Previous work has included guidance on three priority populations (congestive heart failure, COPD and older adults with frailty). Our most recent work has focused on providing evidence-based guidance on why specialized rehabilitation is integral to providing efficient care that achieves good patient outcomes and who requires this focused approach.

Join us for this Lunch ‘N Learn webinar to learn about:
• Why specialized rehabilitation is important
• Which patient populations require specialized rehabilitation
• Planning considerations for OHTs
• Key aspects of specialized rehabilitation for these populations relative to guiding principles

Who should attend?
• Ontario Health Teams
• Program planners
• Front line clinicians
