Introducing the Clinical Component Innovation Advisory Committee

On October 1, CAPR launched a major initiative to adapt the PCE Clinical Component for the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.

This project is being led by a group of leading-edge innovators in remotely-delivered education and examinations. These thought leaders, collaborating with CAPR staff and Canadian physiotherapy regulators, will advise the CAPR Board in the areas of innovation and virtual assessment. The committee began meeting on October 8, 2020, and consists of:

  • Chris Boodram—Regulatory Affairs Officer, Yukon; CAPR Board member.
  • Brandy Green, BScKin, MScPT, CAFCI—Registrar, Saskatchewan; practising community physiotherapist; CAPR Board member.
  • Allison Grieg, BHK, BSc (PT), PhD—Associate Head of MPT Program, University of British Columbia; President of the Board, Physiotherapy Education Accreditation Canada; lead of UBC’s Internationally Educated Physiotherapist Program, with an academic focus that includes the development of virtual patient cases and a web-based, simulated learning model.
  • Mark Hall, PhD—Associate Chair, Faculty of Rehabilitation—Physical Therapy, University of Alberta, with an academic focus that includes clinical education and simulation.
  • Bernadette Martin, BScPT, MA, Communications and Technology—Associate Dean, Faculty of Rehabilitation—Physical Therapy, University of Alberta, with an academic focus that includes distributed learning and the integration of internationally-educated physiotherapists.
  • A recently licensed physiotherapist, and graduate of the University of Toronto’s Ontario Internationally Educated Physical Therapy Bridging Program, currently practicing in the greater Toronto area.

The work of the Advisory Committee will be supplemented by physiotherapist subject-matter experts and broader physiotherapy community consultations.
