The REA Foundation is currently funding the replacement of medical equipment: auditory localization evaluation system (SELA).
SELA makes it possible to evaluate auditory localization abilities, which are essential for ensuring that deaf-blind clients are able get around safely and autonomously in real-life situations. SELA is used to respond to the needs of the deaf-blind clientele served by the joint Surdicécité program, but also those in western Québec who require an evaluation in auditory localization in order to maintain and develop their ability to get around safely and autonomously.
The REA Foundation is currently funding the development of an implementation and clinical intervention guide for the social circus program for physical rehabilitation.
The project involves developing a guide that describes the social circus program for physical rehabilitation in order to ensure the sustainability of this service within the CCSMTL and beyond, and to enable the transfer of this innovative practice to young people with physical disabilities during their transition from school to active adult life.
The REA Foundation is currently funding the upgrade of evaluations of interns and their workstations.
The IRGLM receives some 650 students a year from various milieus, including medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social service, psychology, nursing, nutrition and others. These students come to develop their skills through workplace internships. The project seeks to provide better evaluation and feedback to these interns.
The REA Foundation is currently funding a team of specialists in the application and generalization of expertise
With the goal of introducing to the organization a culture of evidence-based continuous improvement, a team of specialists in the application and generalization of expertise (SAGEs) has been established and became operational in fall 2011 with financial support from the Foundation. The SAGEs’ mandate is to encourage clinicians to reflect on their current practices in order to promote the implementation of best practices in their program. They work to coordinate, promote and facilitate the adoption of best practices under the authority of program leaders.
This project receives support from the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation.
