Telehealth Guidelines - COVID 19
ALL NON-EMERGENCY IN-PERSON APPOINTMENTS WILL BE MOVING TO TELEHEALTH SESSIONS
EFFECTIVE March 18th, 2020 - Jun 2, 2020
The Ontario Physiotherapy Association Policy on Tele-Rehabilitation in times of COVID-19 states:
“In uncertain times and need for social distancing, implementation of telerehabilitation services is spiking in Canada. Remote delivery of physiotherapy is an ideal model to support ongoing physiotherapist services during this period, especially for the most vulnerable.” (https://physiotherapy.ca/times-covid-19)
