2009 Annual Symposium

The Changing Face of Disability
October 18, 2009, Westin Halifax, Halifax, Nova Scotia

Who are the populations that Paediatric Rehabilitation is serving? What is the definition of Rehabilitation? These are both impacted by the “Changing Face of Disability” and are on-going questions and discussions within the Canadian Network of Child and Youth Rehabilitation (CN-CYR). Health Prevention and Promotion, Primary Health Care, the International Classification of Functioning Disability and Health are only a few of the initiatives that intersect with Rehabilitation and impact service delivery. Research does not support the view that disability is decreasing. In fact there is evidence to suggest that there is an increase in some disabling conditions. We invite you to join CN-CYR as we discuss where the swinging pendulum is at this point in time with regard to Paediatric Disability in Canada.
