As the uncharted tide of COVID-19 seems to be ebbing in Canada and provincial governments start to make cautiously optimistic statements about reopening the economy, the physiotherapy industry finds itself positioned within a new reality that is here to stay.
Clinic owners and managers are faced with new decisions and challenges as health authorities gradually allow physiotherapists to return to serving their patients within the clinic environment beyond urgent care. Join Pure Care as they discuss practical ways to navigate the new status quo when it comes to your clinic environment. Whether you are becoming well established in virtual consultation or you have yet to take the first step - this webinar aims to provide real-life sense and up-to-date ideas on your journey forward.
