Interdisciplinary team program of care

The interdisciplinary team program of care is a contracted community-based health care program. The program is for the assessment and treatment of people with complex musculoskeletal injuries. It could include post-surgical treatment, specialized treatment and it allows for the delivery of work hardening services. Work hardening services consist of highly structured, goal-oriented and personalized treatment programs that include real or simulated work activities designed to help people return to work. This may include prescribed, customized exercise programs delivered in a rehabilitation space with dedicated exercise equipment and supervised by a regulated health professional.

The interdisciplinary team program is delivered by health care providers who have met the requirements through an open procurement process and were successful in obtaining a contract. It ensures an interdisciplinary team approach, with the team comprised of, at minimum, a physiotherapist or chiropractor in addition to an occupational therapist. Our goal is to provide care close to home that enables recovery and sustained return to work in a timely and efficient way.
