UHN physiotherapists and physiotherapist assistants sprang into action this month with a dance flash mob in the DeGasperis Conservatory at Toronto General Hospital – a fun and entertaining way to promote healthy activity and National Physiotherapy Month this May.
At UHN, we’re privileged to have more than 200 physiotherapists and physiotherapist assistants working across all programs and sites: from the intensive care units to our complex continuing care and outpatient clinics, providing care to patients seven days per week.
May is NationalPhysiotherapy Month
“It’s important not only to celebrate physiotherapy, but all health professions, as a means of highlighting each of their unique roles within UHN and the larger healthcare system. We all have to work together to provide the best possible care - none of us can do it alone!” says Catharine Duncan, Physiotherapy Practice Leader, General Medicine/Nephrology/Oncology, Toronto General, UHN.
“The Flashmob video provided an opportunity for interaction between the physiotherapy students and UHN staff in a more relaxed environment, and brought together a group ranging from their early 20's to late 60's to be active simultaneously."
Physiotherapy staff work in collaboration with our patients and interprofessional teams to maximize function and physical activity. Physiotherapy staff develop and sustain clinical education offerings to our academic partners and the international health care community, with more than 150 student placements in the past year.
Academic accomplishments include 11 publications in peer reviewed research journals in 2013-2015. Looking ahead and within our larger health care system, patients will see new access points as physiotherapists take up new positions in primary care settings.
UHN physiotherapists and physiotherapist assistants are recognized as exemplary leaders in clinical care, education and research.
