JR Rehab Collabs with CAOT-BC Issue Paper: OT and Re-Assessment

“Occupational therapists have a responsibility to use a systematic approach based on best practice, professional judgement and clinical reasoning in enabling clients
to develop the means and opportunities to identify
and engage in the occupations of life.”

 

JR Rehab recently contributed to the Canadian Association’s publication of an issue paper: Occupational Therapy and Assessment/Re-Assessment. Through these assisted guidelines, insurance companies can gain further insight on how to use OT services effectively in the future. JR hopes to continue collaborating with our fellow colleagues in the community of rehabilitation.

JR Rehab Services Inc. now offers Comprehensive Driver Evaluations

JR Rehab Services Inc. has opened a dedicated clinic in Langley to perform Comprehensive Driver Evaluations.

A Comprehensive Driver Evaluation is an off and on-road assessment of an individual’s ability to safely perform the required components of driving, including physical, cognitive, perceptual and behavioral aspects.

This evaluation is necessary when experienced drivers are questioned about their ability to safely perform this complex task following a diagnosis of physical, neurological or psychosocial significance.

They will be performed by Maureen Woodward, JR Rehab Services Inc. Occupational Therapist with a Graduate Certificate in Driving Rehabilitation, in partnership with RoadSafetyBC and Certified Driving Instructors.

A Comprehensive Driver Evaluation can also benefit novice drivers by determining their ability to learn driving skills and providing recommendations for driver training programs.

At Home Physio with JR Rehab

JR Rehab Services Inc. offer at home physiotherapy throughout the Lower Mainland allowing patients to receive one to one treatment within the comfort and security of their own home.

A dedicated team of physiotherapists is available to assist patients in managing acute and chronic conditions, assessing readiness for active rehab programs, optimizing functional independence and physical performance, rehabilitating injury and effects of disease or disability and preventing reoccurrence, re-injury or functional decline.

“We believe in an accessible, community based approach to rehabilitation and health services,” said JR Rehab Services Inc. founder, Ricardo Nuno.

“By giving patients the option to receive treatment at home, we are helping those who are physically unable to leave their home during recovery, have transportation issues or who would simply feel more comfortable having treatment within their home environment,” said Ricardo.

BCAK/SFU Live Online Seminar: Traumatic Brain Injury – October 28

On October 28, 2014, the Simon Fraser University Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology Department along with members of the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists organized a presentation with an emphasis on Traumatic Brain Injury and Work.

One of our outstanding OTs, Jill Olson, was invited to cover topics that included:

·      Basic brain anatomy and cognitive function

·      Cognitive domains and factors impacting cognition

·      Roles and scope of various rehabilitation team members

·      How pacing and grading activities supports success

Given Jill’s areas of interest and expertise in mild traumatic brain injury and case management of catastrophic injury, there was a great deal of information to share with the audience. The feedback on Jill’s presentation went beyond expected and many viewers report they will be able to apply knowledge and strategies in their academic and clinical endeavours.
