This is the breadcrumbs block. Breadcrumb will populate on actual page.

Purpose of the ABT CoP

The aim of this Activity-Based Therapy Community of Practice (ABT CoP) is to bring together committed individuals with a common interest in ABT who have a desire to work collaboratively. Our work is to expedite the advancement of the Canadian ABT priorities with the ultimate goal of improving access to and quality of ABT for people living with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D).

Priorities identified at the 2019 ABT Summit include (~in order of shorter-term to longer-term vision):

  1. Identifying current ABT activities across the continuum of care (i.e. a ‘snapshot’ of the current state);
  2. Creating a network to facilitate dialogue across the continuum of care;
  3. Tracking engagement in ABT activities across the continuum of care (i.e. identifying a standardized tool(s)/method(s) for documentation);
  4. Development and Implementation of Best Practice Recommendations for ABT;
  5. Study of optimal timing, methods and dose of ABT to promote desired outcomes.

Goals of the CoP

The ABT CoP goals are to provide a national collaboration and communications platform that fosters rapid, coordinated advancements in the identified priority areas through research, dissemination, and implementation activities aimed at enhancing the use of ABT for people living with SCI/D in Canada.
