OSOT Met with the Ministry of Long-Term Care

Last week OSOT met with Rebecca Guida, Director of Stakeholder & MPP Relations at the Ministry of Long-Term Care (MLTC). We discussed increased utilization and funding for occupational therapy in long-term care and highlighted the recommendations from our 2015 report. The benefits and full scope of occupational therapy were reviewed and a summary of the value we bring to support the health human resource shortage and client/residents' quality of life were discussed. The ideas discussed will be forwarded to the Minister for next steps.
