Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic first in the Province to Integrate Physiotherapist as part of Primary Health Care Team
(Essex, ON) The Essex County Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic, is the first in the province of Ontario to integrate a physiotherapist as part of its primary health care team. The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care has for some time been exploring the advantages of expanding frontline teams to include allied health care professionals such as physiotherapists. In fact, recognizing the difference physiotherapy can make on a person’s ability to live an active, healthy lifestyle, Minister Deb Matthews recently introduced new reforms to make way for physiotherapists to have the opportunity to practice as active members of primary health care settings such as Family Health Teams, Nurse Practitioner-Led clinics and Community Health Centres.
“We are thrilled to be the first Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic to embed a physiotherapist as part of our front line care team. Our patients love having on-site access to a physiotherapist,” explains Pauline Gemmell, Executive Director of the Essex County Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic.
John Spirou, who is the current president of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and a local practicing physiotherapist, was quick to respond to the Minister’s reforms and approached the Essex Clinic a few months back to explore the possibility of joining their team.
Gemmell was quick to jump at the opportunity because she believes physiotherapy has many benefits for her patients including pain reduction, improving joint mobility, increasing strength and coordination and improved cardiorespiratory function. “Most of us can really benefit from physiotherapy. Whether you are living with a chronic illness, have arthritic joints, are recovering from a stroke or a workplace injury or suffering after that weekend hockey game physiotherapy is key to restoring and maintaining a level of physical function that permits independent living,” adds Gemmell.
