PTs and PTAs in Home Care

The OPA and Home Care Ontario (HCO) have worked together to develop a resource about models of home care physiotherapy involving both PT and PTA. This resource was created in response to questions and concerns raised by members of both organizations. It addresses challenges and provides solutions and recommendations around the fundamental components of direct care such as clearly defined roles, assignment and supervision, effective communication and consent. It highlights the importance of collaboration, communication and emphasizes physiotherapists’ professional judgement in the delivery of services.
