The role of the physiotherapist assistant in Canada is evolving. An effective PT-PTA team is crucial for optimal client care. The purpose of this workshop is to identify strategies for building an effective physiotherapy team in neuroscience. We will discuss the professional responsibilities of both the PT and the PTA. We will use case studies and the experiences of practising as PTAs to consider best practices in developing a stong PT-PTA team. PTs and PTAs who participate in this workshop will be encouraged to share their experiences.
