As part of CCPOR’s review of the Graduate Studies Program, the Education Committee realized that in the design of an outcome-based curriculum that the College needed to clearly define the Core Competency requirements for Physical and Occupational Rehabilitation Fellows.
To this end, the Education Committee, in conjunction with the College’s Board made use of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada CanMEDS process to develop a new core competencies framework for Chiropractic Rehabilitation Specialists.
Fundamentally, CanMEDS is an initiative to improve patient care. Its focus is on articulating a comprehensive definition and framework of the competencies needed for health profession education and practice. It is utilized by a wide variety of health professional groups aside from the medical community.
