Spotlight Best Practice Organization Brain and Spinal Cord Rehab Program – Toronto Rehabilitation Institute (TRI), University Health Network, Toronto Interactive practice at the Lyndhurst Centre is focused on client-centered care, during inpatient rehabilitation, and with the chronic population where both are involved in ongoing clinical studies. Researchers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, engineers, physiatrists and neurosurgeons work together to discuss the best approaches to enhance upper limb function, design and validate new assessment measures (GRASSP and TRI-HFT), and conduct clinical trials on the implementation of new therapies (such as FEST). This team approach is being translated into practice provincially, nationally and internationally, which assists with capacity building, everywhere. Lyndhurst Centre is part of the Academic Health Science Complex at the University of Toronto, where the development of these activities benefits from the focused training and studies of professional master’s students and graduate students (from the Rehabilitation Science Program), who contribute maximally to moving forward best practices for upper limb rehabilitation. Best practices are facilitated by members of the team who network routinely with other international colleagues at national and international conferences, through training workshops.
