A Canadian Spinal Cord Injury Model of Care

Feb 06, 2024 - 16:00 (EST)
1 hour


The development, process, and considerations for a Canadian Spinal Cord Injury Model of Care will be discussed. To construct this model of care, we have included the voices of Canadians from diverse backgrounds, geographic areas, and experiences with different health care settings. This webinar will target clinicians, people with lived experience, researchers, students, and those interested in health policy. 

Join the Neurosciences Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) for this 60-minute live webinar 'A Canadian Spinal Cord Injury Model of Care'.

Learning Objectives

In this live webinar, we will:

  1. Examine the background and need for a Canadian Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Model of Care
  2. Gain exposure to current Canadian initiatives
  3. Understand the considerations for a Canadian SCI Model of Care and next steps 


Speaker Bio: Dr. Hope Jervis-Rademeyer, MPT, PhD

Dr. Hope Jervis-Rademeyer, MPT, Embodia instructor
Dr. Hope Jervis-Rademeyer is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta under the supervision of Dr. Chester Ho. She received a PhD in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Toronto in 2022 and a Master of Physical Therapy from the University of Saskatchewan in 2017.

Her broader research interest is in implementing neurorestorative approaches to rehabilitate individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) (i.e., functional electrical stimulation cycling, exoskeleton, brain-computer interface, epidural stimulation, activity-based therapy). Currently, her postdoctoral research focuses on national and international collaborations to develop a model of SCI care and to implement functional electrical stimulation cycling for SCI rehabilitation. Dr. Jervis-Rademeyer is the creator and co-host of the podcast Spinal Moves: Canadian conversations about ABT. She has also produced the Bare Bones Podcast designed to improve understanding of bone health after SCI.

Neurosciences Division

Welcome to the Neurosciences Division (NSD), a not-for-profit division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA).

We are a national organization operated by volunteers with a passion for neurological physiotherapy. We connect physiotherapists working in neurological settings to learning opportunities and a community of colleagues across the country.

The Neurosciences Division (NSD) is a not-for-profit, volunteer-driven division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA).

Our Aim is to assist neuroscience physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants in enabling their clients to reach their full potential and participation in their communities through assessment, treatment, assistance, consultation, education, and research.
