Second Wave Preparedness for Clinicians

Second Wave Preparedness for Clinicians

Second Wave Preparedness for Clinicians

Sep 30, 2020 - 20:30 (EDT)
1 hour

Darryl Yardley has just confirmed that he will join us on September 30th for an important discussion about telerehabilitation, virtual care, digital healthcare, and the second wave!

Recently the OPA (Ontario Physiotherapy Association) has communicated what they are doing to prepare for the second wave - as other provincial branches across the country have done as well. While advocacy is underway to support physiotherapy as an essential service, nothing is guaranteed - we are living in a time of uncertainty.

This webinar will focus on strategies to weather the second wave, how to optimize telerehabilitation and communication with patients, and practical strategies you can implement right away.


The anticipated second wave of COVID - 19 is approaching and rightly stoking fears in the minds of clinicians, clinic owners, students, new grads, and patients across Canada.

Whether physiotherapy clinics are considered an essential service or not, how are you and your patients going to weather another wave of the pandemic?

With time on your side before the second wave, you can develop a practical strategy to keep your schedule open and weather whatever this pandemic throws at you.

Join Darryl Yardley, physiotherapist and founder of Mentorship Bootcamp, on 30th September for a FREE 60-minute webinar where he’ll discuss how virtual care can be the viable strategy in your contingency plan.

Top concerns we will address in this webinar:

  • What to do as patient cancellations increase
  • How to manage patients who have to quarantine with their kids
  • What happens if you have to quarantine!
  • I'm a new grad and resident! How am I supposed to get a job in this climate?!

We will also discuss:

  • Different strategies to continue to assess and successfully treat your patients in case we go into lockdown.
  • How to optimize telerehabilitation and communicate with your patients
  • How to market your services during the second wave
  • New grad strategies to work as a physiotherapy resident until the practical exam is offered

We will open the floor to a Q&A session during the last 15 minutes of the webinar. Bring your questions and fire away—this is the webinar that's all about supporting YOU during this crisis.

Whether you are an employee, independent contractor, student, or new grad - register below (you must be logged into your account)! Space is limited to the first 100 clinicians to make sure that we can answer as many questions as possible. 

We're strong. We're resilient, we work well together as a community and we will get through this.
