The provincial Rehab Workforce Task Group’s exploration of system-wide rehabilitative care labour concerns is well underway. This is the first rehab-focused approach to understand the current state of the workforce and lay the foundation for a robust provincial health human resources rehabilitative care strategy.

To support this work, preliminary analysis of results from the first Rehabilitation Provider Experience Survey is complete.  At present, the RCA is conducting further analysis prior to sharing the data in the early 2023 release of the provincial System Performance Report. A workforce environmental scan and collection of current state data are also underway to further inform these efforts.

To help facilitate a national dialogue on labour force issues, the RCA will share this multipronged approach at the upcoming Canadian Health Workforce Conference.
